Rising from the Ashes... Our next Thought-Provoking Question

Postby Warpigs » Wed Feb 02, 2005 3:20 pm

OK all. Back now and shouldn't have a problem being active again on a regular basis. I apologize to those in the Mock Draft, the Extremely Early League and at the Great Debates. Things have majorly changed at work, and I'm back on the floor more with the kids I counsel at our local group home programs. I really enjoy getting more connected and being out of the office, however, things are a little sticky to say the least in the business and we're working to get things back on track. Anyway, that has forced me to be online VERY sporadically the last month, and my time at the FFC has diminished. Losing my laptop to motherboard problems didn't help, which leaves me with a work desktop computer as my only link to you guys. However, the schedule has finally become consistent again, and I'm back for good this time.

Anyway, my Thought Provoking Question is this...

maybe we are supposed to fill in the blank....


Can there be a question, if a question doesnt exist? Doesnt the fact we are questioning where the question is, warrant that the absence of a question is truly a question?

I thought I'd add a little suspense to the whole TPQ process. Here's the question....

Items cost much less thirty to fourty years ago. In an almost proportional ratio, people made much less, too. Hypothetically (sorry, I don't have the time right now to look up actual numbers), if it cost $0.50 a slice for pizza thirty years ago, but a person made on average $2.00 an hour, and now slices cost around $2.00 and the average wage is $8.00 an hour -- couldn't we all just revert current currency back to a 1975 price? What if we all agreed to take a pay cut as long as all merchandise, gas and other expenses also dropped accordingly?

Why? It would be way too complicated to change the prices of everything, and it wouldn't help us out that much.

What would be the point in that? :-? Seems a little complicated and a waste of effort to The 'Cuna.

Why not? The idea may sound ridiculous, but so does the idea of $100 per gallon of gas in 2035. Our current currency will have to change at some point. They're already thinking of phasing out the penny and possible the nickel. Why should we have to eliminate them to keep up with the trend of inflation? Why can't we revert back to 1975 prices? Or, even keep the prices we have now. We all know that the way things are going, a slice of pizza could well be $6 to $8 in thirty years. Why can't we keep prices the way they are now -- even if it means we all have to lose out on a ton of raises. It's obvious that ultimately, our merchandise will increase in cost to keep the overall proportion about the same, anyway.
