Question 25

X was bought by Peter Minuit  in 1626 from native Indian people in exchange for trade goods worth sixty guilders, often mistakenly said to be worth twenty-four dollars. It can be converted to modern currency by comparing bread prices etc. and amounts around $1000 nowadays. What is X?

    I only know of one thing that was bought from Native Americans in exchange for trade goods – New York, or, more precisely, the island of Manhattan. But you’ve said it now costs $1000?!! Manhattan has got to be worth like billions now…?
