I was born in 1943. My, how things have changed.

  • Today, the medium cost of a home in the US is over $270,000, with an average in excess of $330,000.

  • The average US income is over $52,000. That means some are making a lot more and many are making a lot less.

  • When I was in my twenties, it was not hard to find a used car for $50 that would get you around reliably. Now the average cost of a new car is over $30,000.

  • Rent, on the average, is now over $1,000 per month.

  • Harvard tuition for a year is now about $40,000

  • A movie ticket for a matinee showing will now cost about $6. If you live in a nice area, expect $8-$10

  • The US national average for a gallon of regular grad gas is $3.48.

  • A stamp will cost you 49-cents at the moment

  • I’ll stop here with a thought – The middle class in the US is shrinking.
