It is universally recognized that the living standard in America is the highest in the world. This continuous rise has been reflected in each census since 1930. While this overall picture of living standards is generally true, there are grave differences in living standards among people in different geographical sections of America, among Americans who follow different vocations, and among urban and rural dwellers.
While standards of living may be influenced by attitudes, determination, innate ability, and other intangible qualities, undeniably the basis of any rise in living standards is economic in nature. Inherent in the philosophy of the nation is the right to work and live in an economic world which makes it possible for one to maintain a living standard comparable to that of other citizens.
In the past when the farmer lived in an isolated world, the inequality of living standards was not so frustrating and demoralizing as it is today.
