Spending Like It's 1937

Great graphic from the Economist that shows how many Americans have drastically changed their spending habits since the economy decided to dive deeply into the gutter. On the one hand, processed vegetable producers must be absolutely thrilled with the direction of the economy, while on the other hand, manufacturers of new cars and trucks must be feeling rather numb.

One silver lining of a rotten economy...spending on tobacco products has dropped significantly. A silver lining to everyone but tobacco producers that is.
