Fascinating pair of charts from NYT showing the impact of inflation on relative market cap.

Look at the inflation adjusted differences between Cisco (#4 inflation adjusted vs #7 not adjusted ), JPM Chase (19 vs 12), AT&T new (not on list versus 19), Wells fargo (not on list versus 15) and Lucent (16 vs off the list – now part of Alcatel).
