Inflation is rampant in most currencies.  We all hear stories about the older generation filling up their gas tank for a quarter.  Let’s take a look at what you can buy for 10 bucks in 2013:

  • 2 reams of copy paper, 500 sheets each ($4.99 each) – low quality paper
  • 1 movie ticket ($7.93 national average)
  • 2.5 Gallons of regular gasoline
  • 1 super sized value meal at Burger King (average price about $8.50)
  • 10 single lottery tickets for national lotteries like Power Ball or Mega Millions
  • 1 6-pack of Samuel Adams beer (unless you live in New York where you could only get 5)
  • 1 month Netflix (without DVDs)
  • 1 .com Domain name

Or, for only $10/month, you can subscribe to Global Intel Hub and receive cutting edge analysis and research, global macro analysis of the markets, how to guides to optimize your portfolio, tax situation, secure communications, and much more.  If knowledge is power, cost benefit analysis suggest that value/price of membership vs. the above listed consumer products is infinite.  So if you have to, don’t go to the movies this month, skip that one fast food binge and fast instead (fasting has shown cleansing health benefits) and signup to the hub!
