2006 in Review

FYI: Yahoo News (news.yahoo.com) has a great “year in review” module in the right upper hand corner of their home page right now that’s really interesting. Aside from reviewing this year, it features the changes in prices and lifestyle as the population has doubled and tripled since 1915 (when population was 100M). One stat I saw that really opened my eyes is below:

Housing | Eggs

1915: $4,939 $0.39

1967: $23,400 $0.51

2006: $248,500 $1.57

Pretty crazy.
