conversions of USD (though GBP might be handy as well) purchasing
power through time since, say, 1920es, but the longer and more
detailed the better? The best I recall was a graph at the endpaper of
Samuelson & Nordhaus's Ekonomie, but I never googled too deep and
obviously there MUST be something...

BTW, a friend recently drew my attention to this:
http://pdata.webpark.cz and especially
http://pdata.webpark.cz/dokumenty/prekladatelstvi.doc in the
section "Uzitecne informace pro jazykovou praxi". His comment
is "Nasel jsem to nahodou pøi googlovani - jsou to rady stareho
praktika. Graficka uprava ovsem otresna." For me, the flashing
colours, length and current lack of time preclude anything deeper
than skimming, with the resulting feel that "nepretrzita 49leta
cinnost v oboru" brings certain moaning about fallen-ness (sp?) of
the world (cf. some articles in JTP publications or _fejetony_ by
Ivan Klima); and anyway not being a _praktik_ I can't really
appreciate or even judge it. But those who are might be interested.
Sorry if it has been brought up before.
