That's true for some things, such as bread. But not true of others.
Fer instance: a couple weeks ago, I bought a TV for a Christmas present for my wife's Grandmother. It was a 27", stereo sound color TV. Just a plain TV, no High Def, no flat screen or anything special. I gave $189. Brand new from Circuit City.
Assuming that a comparable TV was available in 1950, it would have been maybe $800-$1000, and you would have had to buy it in 1950 dollars, which would be worth how much today? Prolly $8-10K in todays money? Maybe more. And it would have been VHF only, channel 2-13, no remote control, and would have needed a few tubes and a tune-up every couple of years. This one will never need any of that.

It can go both ways.
