Weirdly enough I actually thought of this before its ridicolous paying a 1.75 for a bottle of soda.

It wouldn't work, unless in addition to a pay cut, people agreed to get rid of a fraction of their savings, too. That would be way too complicated and just not necessary.

I guess my point in all this is not that we should officially revert back to 1975 currency value, but overall how we can stop the cycle of wages increasing costs increasing wages increasing costs (of things). It may be a good thing in a gradual sense, but it would be interesting to find a rate of inflation chart somewhere to see just how fast our wage/cost cycle is accelerating lately. It's almost to a point where the American dollar will become as meaningless as monopoly money. Consider that it has increased in every facet. Even the tooth fairy can't get away with leaving a quarter without being considered a cheapskate any more. Average allowance for a child has skyrocketed, etc. The idea that we're all supposed to be excited when the gas prices now drop to $1.75 a gallon is ridiculous considering just a few years ago no one could even imagine paying $1.75 for a gallon of gas in the US (I know gas prices are seperate from other inflation rises). Still, it's almost like we're all expected to just blindly accept that we're going to pay almost double for our kids college degrees than what we paid ourselves, that everything will cost more. Wages may increase some over time, but will they be able to keep up with the accelerated merchandise values?

Did you even listen to my statement? How would you like to invest $1000 in a bond, and then 20 years later receive $1000? And wages and prices are all relative, don't worry about it.

I think that there would be no problem with that, as long as everything stays at the same ratio. The problem would be changing everyhting. It would just take so long to change. I'd do it, becasue it really doesn't make much difference though.
