PDM left a comment on yesterday’s gratitude post betting we didn’t pay $1,000 for the new microwave oven.
He’s right. I don’t remember the exact price of the new one but I don’t think it was much more than $100.
Given the value of the $1000 the original microwave cost us in the 1980s, today’s $100 is far more than 10 times less expensive.
We have technological advances and much freer trade to thank for that and I”m grateful for both.
