Inflation hits 50 Cent

Scrolling on the scientific website, I stumbled on this meme:

Although it’s funny, I have bad news: It’s totally wrong. 

Fifty was born in 1975 – 0.50 USD back then have now the buying power of 0.08 cent, meaning that he would have to change his name to 275 cent or 2.75 USD to have the same buying power. 

There is even a calculator out there where you can calculate the impact of inflation, I recommend you to play around with it and get aware of the devaluation of your FIAT money.
