The value of a dollar: Now Vs Then

Exactly a month ago we shared this infographic showing what $1 can buy around the world. Now, thanks to Mashable, we’re heading back in time, comparing the prices of everyday items to trace the value of the almighty buck.

Take a look at the below infographic for the full rundown of what a dollar would buy you in the past that you couldn’t come close to affording now. Here is a sneak peak: In 1913 you could buy 4 lbs. of Sirloin steak, whereas today you’d settle for the humble portion of just 0.18 lbs.
