What if all this prosperity was just an illusion? (Micro Documentary)
January 9th, 2014
We may think we live in the richest country in the world because of easy access to consumer goods, cars, homes, education and health care.
But what if it has all been an illusion?
Let’s start with all the things we HAVE to spend money on…
Health insurance has risen by 85%.
Mortgage payments, despite low rates have risen 81%.
Child Care, well that’s up 100% since that wasn’t really an expense pre-1970.
Taxes have gone up by 28% due to the 2 income family.
What we see is that where the government is involved heavily… costs have risen dramatically.
