What We’ve Read Today…

The Clark Street Crew…

What are things we didn’t learn in school, but we should?

Pay attention, you will NEVER learn this in school.

The economics of work.

Do the math:

  • Minimum wage in 1970: $2.10/hr
  • Price of 1 oz of gold in 1970: $37

 Back then, 17.62 minimum-wage-hours were needed to buy 1 oz of gold. ($37 / $2.10)


  • Minimum wage (Texas): $7.25/hr.
  • Price of 1 oz of gold: $1,800 (approx.)

— —> Today, a minimum wage worker needs to work 248.27 hours to afford 1 oz of gold. ($1,800 / $7.25)


In today’s dollars, a minimum wage worker would need to make: $7.25 x 14 = $101.50/hr. to have the equivalent purchase power of 50 years ago.

When will this trend stop?

It won’t.

The value of labor will continue to be depreciated.

Stop working for money — instead, invest your time building assets that make money for you.
