US standard of living is dropping

The crisis didn’t start last year, it was building up for some time.
The real reason was not the housing bubble. Yes, housing prices soared due to
Greenspan’s ultra easy monetary policy in the early 2000-s,
but, in fact, in gold terms they are quite average historically, as of late 2009/early 2010.
The real problem was falling US standard of living, and that has been happening for some time,
as seen on these charts below. The falling standard of living is a direct consequence of
the falling currency.
