They actually are.

If you compare a car of today with a car from 20 years ago with the same power and weight the one from today will be a lot more efficient.

We don’t really notice much difference because cars today are much more powerful and faster than before.

However a Mercedes c class is faster today than Lamborghini from the 90’s, and also much more efficient.

Russia had an interest rate of 20% for while this year. Inflation over there is currently at around 13%. The rate is now 8% but you could’ve opened some pretty nice savings accounts this year. Plus the currency has grown against the USD like 30%.
