In celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this year marking her 60 years as monarch, BMO Financial Group takes a fascinating look back between then and now in terms of how key financial and economic indicators have changed over the past six decades in Canada, from the early Fifties to today.
"There has been a tremendous amount of change since 1952, including a rapid transformation of the global markets," says Paul Taylor, Chief Investment Officer, BMO Harris Private Banking and BMO Global Asset Management.
University tuition, for example, was only $450 back then, the average cost of a car $1,510, and house prices were about $14,000.
Boy would we love those prices now!
