Cost of life today and 100 years ago:

If every year it feels like everything costs a little more, it isn't your imagination. Inflation takes its toll over the years, and as 2014 passes into the annals of history, let's take a look back at how much we were spending a century ago.

{In 1915 incomes were low and so were the commodities necessary for life. 100 years later incomes are high and so is everything you buy. In 1915 a women who was lucky enough to find a job was paid half of what the man received for doing the same work. According to statistics from the Census Bureau, typical prices for 1915 food include: -- a loaf of bread: 7 cents-- a dozen eggs: 34 cents-- a quart of milk: 9 cents-- a pound of steak: 26 cents. Which is better? Low wages and low expenses or high wages and high expenses? What do you think of it all?}

"libido sciendi"..... the passion to know.
