42. The answer would have to address the question of the long-term changes in the cost of living.

For instance, housing costs went up dramatically after 2001 (and no, not everyone profited from the increase in home values; in fact some were shut out of the market).

Then there are the costs of food, fuel, transportation, and health insurance coverage. The shifts do not and did not take place overnight, or even in a three- or four-year period.

The same is true of the debt.

So any answers would be relative, not absolute,
