I am troubled.
In fact … because I don’t know why I am troubled … I am double-troubled.
There is something about this post that has `got me` (like a Cupid’s arrow).
What we got here, is –
1. Education prices up.
2. Health-care prices up.
3. Infrastructure prices up.
4. Housing prices up.
The first head-twister is that … compared to how much the prices are up, it doesn’t look like there are any sort of pro-rata increase in quality.
Here we have to throw-in the example of `electronics` … where price is down as big as quality is up.
There is something wrong here … because there are no easy-answers that really satisfy.
It could be that the four examples are not, when looked at differently, real examples.
Or, that the examples are good, but should not be thought of `as a group`.
It could be something else.
But … I don’t know … something is wrong.
There are many `easy answers` … the easiest being that `tech` has brought down production-costs of `tech type tings` (and this must be right).
But … wages for the people in the examples have been `flat` compared to the `45 degree angle up` of the prices charged.
I’ll leave it to you to have a read and a think … if you have the time’n’inclination.
