Food For a Week - Photo Study

This is a fascinating photo study of family food choices and costs in different countries. Let us never forget the bounty that is lavished upon us in the United States where food is cheap and abundant today, but where it wasn't always so.

Perhaps most interesting is the parity between what the middle class Chinese family spends and the middle class California family spends, but I suspect that's a much higher percentage of the Chinese family's income where the California family probably spends far more on housing in terms of percentage of income.

  • It's also interesting to compare the two American families.
    The North Carolina family spends twice as much as the California family. I don't know whether that based mostly on income or eating habits though
