F16 - Financial Planning by jbwarner86 F16 - Financial Planning by jbwarner86
I foreshadowed the hell out of Joel buying his guitar in these early Forever 16s. Keep an eye out to see some of the other ways he manages to scrape up enough change over the first half of 1990 :)

I would say it was worth it if a hot Russian girl willingly made out with you, and that you got to visit a different country. But mostly for the fact that you had a hot Russian girl make out with you. :P

As if by funny coincidence, I was checking my e-mails and just saw a news report listed about Russia "shutting down another McDonald's".

Mooching it off parents will always be the best way to get money. I should know. Been scamming my folks out of two bucks everyday since High School!

Yeah, can't wait for the story where russian girl makes the trip to America to be with Joel...  ...only to find out he's gotten a new girlfriend in the interim.

The minimum wage in USSR in 1991 for full-time workers was about $4/hr.  But we know Joel is part-time since Olga is part-time shift supv.  In 1991 USSR McDonalds was special--a very desirable place to work--so let’s say he made the very, very attractive wage of 5.78/hr.  Joel worked less than one full day--it seemed at least a month, long, but like One day in the life of Ivan Denisovich, it was just one day.  Let us assume he had put in seven and one-half hours when he was fired.  (You do not want to say terminated in USSR)  Thus 7.5hr x 5.78$/hr =  $43.35 gross   Less (of course)  $ 1.92 meals  (including 5% McD macdiscount); $3.74 uniform  including  discount for returned uniform in good condition;  $8.84  20% personal non-resident tax;  $5.04 housing including InterFlop discount for not having used room or linens; $.81 rubles to-US dollar exchange rate fees = 23.00 net. But remember your first French kiss?  Olga's tongue: Priceless; he did ok.

How much did a guitar cost in the early 90's ?

That's a lot of trouble for a mere 23 American dollars, with all the travel and I have no idea how long he worked. I mean, I don't think the economy of the 1990s were much different than now. Maybe if it were the 70s when prices were much much lower...

minimum wage in ussr in 1991 was 4.00/hr and Joel is part-time so he does not even rate that.
