American consumer spending trends over 75 years 

This is a really important chart. It shows the breakdown of Americans spending over the last 75 years.  

I'll write more on this later, but consider which categories have a 'track' in place to drop the expenditures in this category. Education, going digital - yes. Food production, lots funding into this - yes. Transportation, lots options on horizon - yes.

Which categories have no solution on the horizon to drop the cost? Housing. Why is this a problem - take a look at the 75 year trend.

Note: This chart is for individual spending. Many of these categories have third party payers that are not accounted for here. Such as education (government), or healthcare (government, or insurance).
