Summary: Eventhough many agricultural commodities have gone up on average only around 3% (sugar, soybeans, cacoa, milk, ...) since 1972, many others have gone up more than 5% per year, bringing the average at 5% real inflation per year. This means the USD lost on average 5% per year in purchasing power. Here a list of items I found that went up around 5% or more:






From 1971 to 2015 the price of real estate has gone up on average 5.78% per year.
From 1971 to 2015 the price of a new Corvette car has gone up on average 5.18% per year.

From 1972 to 2015 the price of Bacon has gone up on average 4.82% per year.
From 2004 to 2015 the price of a Mc Donald's Big Mac hamburger has gone up on average 3.94% per year.
From 1970 to 2013 the price of a Hershey chocolate bar has gone up on average 5.20% per year.
From 2004 to 2013 the price of Nabisco's Oreo cookies has gone up on average 6.19% per year.
From 2000 to 2013 the price of Kellogg's Corn Flakes has gone up on average 5.08% per year.
From 2002 to 2013 the price of Coca Cola has gone up on average 6.55% per year.
From 1970 to 2012 the price of Campbell's Tomato Soup has gone up on average 3.96% per year.

From 1971 to 2015 the price of oil has gone up on average 5.48% per year.
From 1971 to 2015 the price of coal has gone up on average 4.20% per year.
From 1971 to 2015 the price of natural gas has gone up on average 5.31% per year.
From 1971 to 2015 the price of gold has gone up on average 7.86% per year.
From 1971 to 2015 the price of silver has gone up on average 9.35% per year.

No replies  Undecided

You know, inflation studies always lack one thing: price data.

Indeed, not a single inflation study that I know off publishes the price data they base their conclusions on.


Not Bureau of Labor Statistics (CPI), nor shadowstats, nor Billion Prices Project, nor Peter Schiff's Inflation Study.

Only mine does.

Shows how fucked up the current economy is. The minimum/average wage isnt really going up as fast as the price of goods. Soon they will be out of our reach.

Thanks man Smiley


There is a big difference between minimum wage and avg wage.

Minimum wage is an obligation of the state, backed by violence, to pay every employee you have minimum x amount. This causes unemployment as you can't employ any longer someone you need to pay $12 but is only offering $8 of value.

Real inflation going up faster than minimum wage is therefore a good thing as more people get employed the lower the real minimum wage is.


Average wage not going up as fast as real inflation of 5% is a big problem though, forcing people to go out work with 2 now to make the same 1 person made at the time. This has been a trend for many decades, since the 1970's. Partly due to rising inflation/money printing but also more people joining the workforce, women especially, raising the supply of work, but due to taxes on work continuing to be high, and competition/outsourcing, demand for workers has not been going up as fast, lowering the prices for labor.


Luckily productivity increases, technology and outsourcing have allowed us to buy a lot more with a lot less money as well. The smartphone for example replaces the cost of a telephone, computer, camera, navigation, agenda for many people for a fraction of the cost.

And if we succeed with bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies people will also get much better money in the future, allowing to save and spend money, for a fraction of cost of current money and banking solutions.

I don't think this is just a problem in America. Here in the Philippines commodities increase in price almost yearly but the minimum wage trails far behind. In fact there many criticizing the current minimum wage, that it can't even sustain a family of 3. Sad  Sadly we really can't rely on the government to look after us. Not even saving up money in the bank (for those who can even afford it) is enough. This why some of us here are looking into cryptocurrencies. Sure the price can go through dramatic falls but compared to fiat the increase is large enough that you can say you "profited" from the coin you bought.

What is even worst is when this inflation is encouraged by the European Central Banks, whom seeks a "reasonable" inflation of 2% a year !

It is good to know somebody is taking inflation studies so seriously. I am amazed to know the prices has gone upto 5% which in turn has led to heavy duties by government. But the minimum wages are not moving up that fast. In my country the situation more difficult as there is no minimum wage in my country. You have to work as per the employers rules and regulation. And moreover government still takes taxes from us that makes it more hard. So earning here is like slowest job while spending is like as fast loosing water from the palm. Dam that is ridiculous situation since 1971 to 2017 by today. Never thought of it that way.  Roll Eyes
