Price Changes Over the Last 20 Years Prove the Economy is Rigged


28 January 2019


The economy is rigged.

That’s the message behind our recent analysis of price changes over the last 20 years. We looked at everything from mass market consumer items, like TVs, cell phones and apparel, to critical life-altering purchases, like healthcare, college tuition and textbooks. It turns out that the most important things in life keep getting more and more expensive, while the things that don’t really matter keep getting cheaper.

The growth in hourly earnings appears to have slightly outpaced the food, housing, and the average for all items. College-related item costs are stratospheric because Big Government is giving out too many student loans like candy (making student loans dischargeable in bankruptcy might help...) A similar phenomenon is likely going on with healthcare.

Does the "College tuition and fees" line take into account the difference between "sticker price" and "actual price"?
