The United States purchased Alaska from Russia on March 30, 1867 for $7.2 million. Adjusted for inflation, it would be $120 million. 586,412 square miles (or 375,303,680 acres) of land was bought for two cents per acre. According to #WashingtonPost, Alaska would be worth $2.5 trillion today. That’s $6,661 per acre - a whopping appreciation of over 33 million%.
Now, wouldn’t it be nice to that get that kind of return on our investments?
