A comparison of the labor needed now vs. 1958 to purchase three items. All the items are cheaper in real terms, including the toaster, and the TV and music player are absurdly better than their 1958 counterparts. I wasn’t around in 1958, but I did live through much of the sixties, and trust me: now is better — way better.
