Carpe Diem, human browser

Did you know that wheat prices are actually down?

Or, "According to data available from the USDA, expenditures on food as a share of disposable personal income have decreased from a high of 25.2% in 1933 to a low of 9.7% in 2004. In 2005 and 2006, there were insignificant increases to 9.8% and 9.9%, respectively."

Or that, "since late 2006 male employment in the U.S. has been stagnant, while female employment has continued to grow. From April of last year through April 2008, men have lost 131,000 jobs while women have gained 781,000 jobs."

Or that there's at least one monopoly that's raised price faster than OPEC has been able to. Perhaps President Bush could make a diplomatic mission to the sheik of USPS.

If not, then maybe you should make Carpe Diem a regular read (besides the words there are lots of nifty charts, too).
