The first quote box is from me - as showing. Are you also attributing the second quote box to me? It doesn’t say who you are quoting. It might be inferred or implied that it’s from me - but it’s not mine.

 

 

The second box is from the link given in the quotebox.

 

 

 

Nothing to say about the subject matter?

It may have been edited (I can't tell), but, it's showing to me that it is quoting  https://nzhistory.govt.nz/culture/the-1970s/overview

 

Edit - it's in your quote that it is referencing the site, but, may not be clear to all.

 

 

 

 

It is not my quote at all. I never made a post referencing that site.

OK - how about: You selectively quote the words from that website “In 1975 the average weekly wage was $95 (equivalent to $920 in 2018). This rose to $157 by 1979,”. Why did you chop off the end of the second sentence that adds “...but because of inflation the average Kiwi was no better off”?

Perhaps because in the context of this discussion it is not relevant. Yes there were high interest rates but year on year the percentage of your income spent on housing significantly decreased once you bought a house.

Precisely.  

 

Sure, your food cost you 10% of your wage in 1975, and it still cost you 10% of your wage in 1979.

 

Ditto with transport and clothing and most other goods and services, but your mortgage payments and debt weren't inflation adjusted.  they were the same in nominal dollars as they were in 1975, but your income had risen 60%+.
