Wow. Did you folks not even READ that the figures are adjusted for inflation? Yes, IT'S ADJUSTED so the $5.29 for eggs are what you would spend TODAY if you had their budget, because a dime back then was more like a dollar.

The prices for food, incomes, and other stats are so far out of whack that the whole project looks like a 1st grader put this together.

$23,738 per year in the 1950's? That was a considerable large sum of money back in those days. In today's terms that amount would be equivalent to over $200,000. $2,500 per year at that time sounds more realistic.

$5.29 for a dozen eggs in the 1950's ??? That's a fairly substantial error and suggests we should be skeptical about any of these data...Humbug indeed !

Although Pixdaus is not a good place to show this kind of project, the project was good. Correction: a dozen eggs in the 1950's didn't cost $5.29.
