Me too. cheers.gif

I used to bag groceries when I was a child. For some reason I noticed that a full paper bag of groceries would never go to $8. Never.

Today, $40 might not fill a paper bag.

i'm just asking because i'm interested in the relation between monthly expenditures for food and the monthly net income. i'm wondering if the ratio of both is still the same today.

edit: for example the median net income of a single person in germany is about 1600 euro/month while a single person needs about 150 to 200 euro for food per month - which means that about 9.4 - 12.5 % of the average person's income goes into food.

The median income for households has fallen $5,000 since 2009.

Meanwhile costs of consumer goods has risen especially when food and fuel are included which the government conveniently leaves out.

Some of this due to the creation of the Federal Reserve 101 years ago. Slowly but surely it has caused a devaluation of the dollar.

The dollar was almost constant for the first 130 years of this nation's existence. But the unFederal noReserve could only eat way at the dollar's worth. Mathematically, it couldn't do anything else.

That's because every dollar they create is a loan that requires interest to be paid on top of it. But where does the government get the money to pay the interest?

Simply put, when the Fed lends $100 and $101 is due, where do you get the $1 extra?? Only from the Fed LENDING a second $100 that also comes with $1 in interest due. This goes on to infinity where the government falls increasingly into debt.

The taxpayer is hit up with increasing amounts of taxes, but no amount can pay the debt ultimately.
