Just thought I'd have a go of the Yankee inflation calculator and the Bank of England one after noticing how much a B52 Bomber was in 1955 and adjusted for inflation.
U.S. Inflation Rate, 1955-2015 ($100) = 3.70% per year. Prices in 2015 are 784% higher than in 1955. $100 equivalent purchasing power now requiress $784.39 over 60 years.
BofE Inflation Rate, 1955-2016(£100) = 5.40% per year. Prices in 2015 are 2366% higher than in 1955. £100 equivalent purchasing power now requires £2366.59 over 60 years.
That is the importance of the Dollar hedgemony, that is the effect of compounding, that is in part why the U.K. has been royally fucked over and why the U.S. military is so 'important' for the Yanks.
By One percent
Rail fairs are going up by over 3 percent. Meanwhile wages are stagnating or dropping. Are we close to the point when it is not longer viable to work?
Season tickets to London are already above £5,000 from places such as Milton Keynes (£5,028 to London) and Portsmouth and Southsea in Hampshire (£5,048).
When fares increase in January 2018, London commuters in Oxford, Colchester in Essex and Hastings in East Sussex are also set to join the club.
Alistair Carter, from Bishop's Stortford in Hertfordshire, avoids the £5k commuter club - but only because he cycles the final leg to his Mayfair office.
His wife Agatha is already a member - she pays £5,092 ever year, including Tube travel.
"I have said to my boss that when my fare hits £5,000 I will be looking for a new job," says Alistair, a recruiter, whose ticket to London currently costs £4,094 a year.
