"It is hard to argue that the poor are worse off now than many years ago. The real cost of living is how much something costs in terms of hours of work needed to purchase something, and it is quite remarkable how much better off *everyone* is in this respect."I think the United States is the only country in the world where poor people own a car, albeit an old model, own color television sets, CD players, have phones, and are probably obese. The more wealthy someone is - most likely - the more likely they have a gym membership, work out and eat right. Poor people load up on carbohydrates and fat and are fat. My brother has been to Indonesia, and from what he tells me, it's not like it is here! In Indonesia, poor people are skinny, don't drive cars, and don't own color TV sets! - Art
