Wait, what?

$800 in cash is still worth $800 in cash.

If the guy is buying a TV in cash, it doesn't appear that he has his finances under him enough to be investing to keep up with inflation as he would be using a credit card for cash back :laugh:

^ Buying power has decreased over the years. Inflation, energy costs, wages, and all that.

What $800 could have bought 3 years ago, will likely cost a good bit more now.

I theory, yes, but it seems prices have remained stagnant over the past few years. Gasoline increased and decreased. Gas prices were higher than they were now in 2008, dropped in 09 and are hovering around $3.50-4.00 since late 10' in high demand months. Electronics have fallen. Food is more tied to oil prices.

Then again, the economy has been all over the place the last 5 years.

The better question: Is Hum a real person?
