(and that's taking into account the recent gold price suppression)
Your purchasing power in gold since 1971...
714 / 174 ~= 4.1
... thus, was multiplied by 4.1
(i.e., the ugly truth in crude math to ponder about...
put otherwise: how to buy four of the same homes - yes: 4 - "for the price of one", so to speak and, well, with gold, anyway...)
