    The Western world reached his wealthiest period around 1980-85. After that we went the way down.

    Because mullets, Rubix Cube, video games and slasher films were all the rage. Best decade, man. :)

    Start winding up the poor time I see, make them resent the not poor and demand change, Socialism is that change I fear, then everyone is poor.

    "The Great Reset!" it's coming and it's going to suck!!

    If I recall, 1960's - 1970's were the greatest years. The golden years.
    After that began the fighting in South Africa and Rhodesia, then slow downhill from there.

    Then in 1980's women began working in employment so 'to get a bigger house', then RE prices compensated and so began the treadmill of working to pay off housing.
    Prior to that mostly it was one income earners, where dad worked, mum at home.

    The standard of living for most people in the world is the highest it has ever been. Billions have moved out of abject poverty due to trade. Bad news for Americans whose jobs were lost to somewhere cheaper. Trump has brought back 11,000 of the 63,000 factories lost but is favourite to lose re-election.
