11. Rents keep climbing and income doesn't. We are living on rented money and borrowed time.

There is no metric for the value earned in all those new jobs versus cost of living change over the last 5-10 years. Many of the jobs lost in that time are not coming back. Service jobs at minimum wage or lower do not make up for production jobs at union rates sent to China or elsewhere.
