I just came across this statistical analysis from Carpe Diem and the BLS. Try to spot the outlier. (sarcasm) . It truly is astonishing what has happened to the cost of a variety of goods and services over the past 20 years. My friend Michael Underhill who runs Capital Innovations, LLC posted this chart.
While many things are more affordable…(like the much cheaper flat screen televisions to watch College Hoops)…it is amazing to see how the cost of a college education has diverged from almost everything else we purchase (including healthcare)! #sourceofthesource
