The average wage in the United States in 1960 was $20-25000 /y today it's $45-50000 /y

Compare what is comparable ...

Breaking news: prices have gone up.

Anyway, CPI data says that the inflation rate from 1962 to 2011 is 647.4% if anyone wants to do fun calcs for their own interest.

A burger for 99 cent, Levi's for $50,00 ..damn that's cheap. The US is so goddamn cheap (or still just normally priced)..

A tall cup of StarBucks "coffee" would cost you about 3 to 4 euro's in Holland. 1 euro is about $1,45.
