I was thinking about our "infrastructure" in the mid-60's when many of us bought our first car.
As I remember.
My mom paid $42,000 for her house... 51 yrs later sold for $1,290,000
Gas was about $.27 a gallon.... 2011 $3.40 in AZ
Berkshire Hathaway (Warren Buffett) class A stock $19 - last Friday $107,800 a share
VW Bug 1965 new - $1900 - today used about $27,000 in great condition (eBay)

... I'm still a struggling middle class retiree..... but! in 1965 I was on top of the world!
