Movie Fact #816 – July 18th, 2015

The 1967 film “Divorce American Style” can help show a little about economic inflation. Early in the movie, they mention that they’re paying their maid $250/month and that their house cost $49,000. With inflation adjust equivalents in 2010, that would be $1614.14/month for the maid and $316,372.14 for the house. Wow. Wow is all I can say.
