But look at inflation:
A WOMAN will be celebrating Christmas with a £3 set of fairy lights that she bought… 40 years ago.
She says that they were the cheapest in town (at Woollies natch).
But calculating by changes in average earnings £3 in 1969 is £74.00 now.
I have a feeling that you\’d be able to get a set of fairy lights for £3 in today\’s money wouldn\’t you?
Ain\’t capitalism grand?
