I'm making as much now as it took my dad to make in 25 years at his job.
i make more in a day than my parents made a week in the mid 60s.
That is called inflation.
A "basket" of goods and services that cost: $100 in 1965
...would cost: $708.77 in 2012
I frequently make more in 1 day in the stock market now than I made in a whole year when I started out after college in the 70's.--
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasury.
