How do we even survive lol

To make the effects of inflation a little clearer for everyone, I went to the US Dept of Labor website and used their CPI Inflation Calculator to compare the buying power of $34,000 in January of 1977 to $34,000 in January of 2016. It’s not pretty.

34,000 DOLLARS IN JANUARY OF 1977 HAS THE SAME BUYING POWER AS 137,694.77 DOLLARS IN JANUARY 2016
