What Things Cost in the U.S. in 1836--How Much WAS a One Pound Bladder of Snuff?

Since 1913, (the inception of the federal reserve) dollars have been devalued (inflation) by 93%.

A dollar today would be like 93 dollars in 1913.
Or, something that cost $1 in 1913 would cost $93 today.

What costs $93 today?
I was at Kroger the other day and deli sliced Boar's Head roast beef was $8.99 a lb, so 10 lbs would be about 90 dollars. That same 10 lbs of roast beef would have cost ONE measly dollar in 1913.

Further, because of the various taxes levied on you (income, sales, property, yadda yadda), you have to earn $3 in order to spend $1, and that $1 is equal to 3 cents in 1913 money.

Is it any wonder you're always broke come Monday?

Roll those numbers around a bit and see if you don't get severely pissed off.

The first question is very poorly worded
"a cistern containing 600 gallons"
What is important is not what it contains but remaining capacity.

One of the first things Trump should do is replace all of the Federal Reserve Governors with Muslims.
We've had thirty years of Ashkenazi and it's destroyed the American Middle class and vastly enriched the jewish bankers.
Funny dat.

600 gal on hand, 120 gph in, 100 gph out, 30 hrs later cistern will be empty. Total capacity or remaining capacity is irrelevant. Distance from cistern to hoosegow is also irrelevant.

Fluid barrel is 31.5 gallons, then as now .. .check the math on the list of items and you will see that they all agree (including 4 bbls of gin @ .60 per gallon = $75.60)

Interesting that the page uses commas, rather than decimal points, to divide the dollars and cents. Much of Europe still does. I wonder when the style changed?
