The Most for the Least

If you aren’t careful, you will be told that American’s have it pretty bad; especially right now.

Unemployment is up, health care is up.  All of it, is up.  Except wages, and they are down.  It’s all bad news.

Except, well, maybe it’s not from Mark Perry:

when you factor in the fact that the typical new home built today (average of 2,519 square feet) are more than 50% larger than the typical new home in 1973 (1,660 square feet, see bottom chart above, data here), Americans have never had it better when it comes to housing costs.

Just another example that we are living in the best to live.  Ever.
