    1971 Cost of Living

    Wouldn't it be great to have these costs but with your current income? We'd be sittin' pretty! Which item do you think has increased the most significantly over the last 40 years?

    If we lived back then with our current salaries, think of the real estate we could snag! I'd buy some beach property in San Diego (Coronado, to be exact.)

    I think gas has probably gone up the most...

    Looking at the chart and converting It to £'s I would say for me, It would be Bacon.

    I did a check on the cost of attending Harvard College in 2013 and found that tuition/room/board in 2013 is $ 56,407 . Holy cow!!

    That's what I thought... it's more than the average median income in the US. It's an obscene amount of money.

    US median annual income falls 1.1% in February, down 6% since the start of the recovery | AEIdeas

    1971 in the UK if you were poor you had university fees paid for and received a grant to live on. Nowadays tertiary education is out of reach except for the most wealthy.

    And what's that got to do with the cost of ground coffee and average rent?

    I'd buy beachfront in Del Mar or a huge place uphill in Julian (love those apple pies).
