comment What is the equivalent buying power of one 1945 Reichsmark in 2016 Euros?
writing that comment I realized just how true my cynicism was. Wage & price controls exist in order to substitute hope for truth. They really don't have any other purpose except to maintain ignorance and concentrate power in the hands of the elite. Which is ironic given that they are usually proposed by populists. But I've crossed the line into discussions in comments.

comment What is the equivalent buying power of one 1945 Reichsmark in 2016 Euros?
The excellent answer below brings up another question - what is it you really want to know? There are various ways to compare economic activity - buying power is one of the standards, but government wage and price controls are intended to conceal economic reality and make economic comparison nigh impossible (it puzzles me why they remain popular). You'll get better information on how to measure the phenomena if you can explain what you want to measure.

comment What were the requirements in order for a man to become a burgher (or citizen) in German cities in the middle ages?
Those details (appropriately sourced) would have made this a fantastic question.
