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.

I cant be of much help...I know we shop sales markdowns and reduced section..my parents had it a lot easier when I was young..we ate steak once a week and seafood..and roasts..today the price of beef has gone thru the roof and all other groceries

While I see and feel the middle class being ruthlessly strangled out of existence...

I watch not so old movies where most everything is sold in cents not dollars...

When i was younger I use to be able to buy a pack of baseball cards and a drink and a candy bar for around a dollar...

Tptb creating a race of masters and slaves is nothing f###en new...
