According to the experts, my house is worth LESS than I paid for it 30 years ago. It's all relative. 5 years ago it was worth 50 million, now it's worth 50 cents. 5 years ago AIG was the largest insurance company on Earth, now they're practically worthless. 30 years ago you coulda bought Apple for the price of a car, now you could sell it and buy the entire state of California. Money is only a way of keeping score, and in the end, the score always reverts back to zero.
