I’m no economist. I don’t even know how to do math. Nor do I understand most aspects of most things that involve practical intelligence. But something is weird when it comes to the history of the pricing of electronics and maybe somebody can explain it to me.
Okay here’s the thing. In 1982, a can of soda was what… 50 cents? In 1962 it was what? Ten cents? Now it’s a dollar or whatever. Back in the 80′s you could get a Toyota for like like $8000. Now it’s double. Back in the 50′s a Six pack of beer in 1950 was what? $1.50? Now it’s $10 (depending on whatever). Everything has gone up, right?
Plane tickets. Haircuts. Houses. Milk. Furniture. Cup of coffee. Sunglasses. Car rentals. Movie tickets. Everything like doubles every 20 years or so, right?
But look at these random ads for electronics from back in the day..

I grew up in New York– but my nephews and niece are growing up in New Jersey.
If you’re not from Jersey, Jersey jokes are sometimes funny and seemingly victimless or deserved. But I found out if you’re a kid — Jersey jokes on TV and in movies sort of totally suck.
Especially when you and don’t fall into the fringe category of “Jersey Shore” or “Housewife” Jersey or dbag jersey.
I remember years ago watching Matagascar with my nephews and a Jersey joke went by.
Marty the Zebra: I’ll be over here! On the FUN side of the island, havin’ a good ol’ time. A great ol’ time! A GREAT ol’ time. A yabba-dabba-doo ol’ time! WILMA!
Alex the Lion: That’s not the fun side. THIS is the fun side! Whoo! I love this side; this side’s the best! That side STINKS! You’re on the JERSEY side of this cesspool!
My nephew, maybe 5 years old at the time, gave me a confused look. (why they say Jersey, uncey tah?) I knew it was the first Jersey joke he ever heard. He didn’t get it. I realized that it would soon become clear that his Jerseynish would be an issue in one way or another. (continue reading…)
