    INFLATION?

    Comments made in the year 1957
    1. "I'll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it's going to be impossible to buy a week's groceries for $20."

    2. "Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won't belong before $5000 will only buy a used one."

    3. "If cigarettes keep going up in price, I'm going to quit. A quarter is a pack is ridiculous.

    4. "Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to mail a letter?"

    5. "If they raise the minimum wage to $1, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store."

    6. "When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 29 cents a gallon.

    7. Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage."

    8. "Kids today are impossible. Those ducktail haircuts make it impossible to stay groomed. Next thing you know, boys will be wearing their hair as long as the girls.

    9. "I'm afraid to send my kids to the movies any more. Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying 'damn' in 'Gone With TheWind,' it seems every new movie has either "hell" or "damn" in
    it.
    \10. "I read the other day where some scientist thinks it's possible to put a man on the moon by the end of the century. They even have some fellows they call astronauts
    11. "Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $75,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the president."

    12. "I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would
    be electric. They are even making electric typewriters now."
    13. "Its too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet."

    14. "It won't be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work."

    15. "Marriage doesn't mean a thing any more; those Hollywood stars
    seem to be getting divorced at the drop of a hat."

    16. "I'm just afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business."

    17. "Thank goodness I won't live to see the day when the Government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to congress."

    18. "The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on."

    19. "There is no sense going to Lincoln or Omaha anymore for a weekend. It costs nearly $15 a night to stay in a hotel."

    20. "No one can afford to be sick any more; $35 a day in the hospital is too rich for my blood.

    21. "If they think I'll pay 75 cents for a hair cut, forget it."

    • Bonds, sometimes referred to as "Certificates of Guaranteed Confiscation", have deteriated in value over time in a most destructive way. Consider if you had bought the 30 year treasury at $10,000.00 in 1972. At that time, 10 grand would've purchased 4 Volkswagen Beetles with enough money left over to travel around North America. Cashing that bond today, you'd have enough to make a good downpayment on a Volkswagen Beetle, but no money left for gasoline.

    • Long beautiful hair, shoulder lenghth or longer, streaming, gleaming and so forth?

      Per your number 21>>>>>
      "If they think I'll pay 75 cents for a hair cut, forget it."

      Not exactly radical, but pecuniary principals were involved. Something like a six bits shakedown and a fuck off gesture to Mr. customs man. I don't have a number.

      The best,
