A Century of Inflation II

Back in 1909, a bottle of Coca-Cola cost about 5 cents. Today, a bottle of Coca-Cola costs at least $1.50, which is 95% higher than the price 100 years ago.

Reality is that over the past century, the US dollar has lost 95% of its purchasing power (at least when it comes to buying a bottle of Coke).
