Let me just say we do not use the 1920s a standard for poverty today. Only someone who has such a far claim to make would go to such lengths.
Thank you for agreeing with my analysis, that it isn't how much money you have. It's WHAT THAT MONEY WILL BUY. The RICHEST men of the 20s had more money (and that was back when dollars were backed by gold and were worth more) than today, but their standard of living was below that of our homeless.
Facts don't care about your feelings.
