We Americans complain bitterly about the rising cost of food. Most Americans don't realize just how good we really have it in the land of plenty. In countries where people make much less money, they spend a much higher percentage of their incomes on food.
Wealthier industrialized nations spend a small percentage of their weekly budgets on food. According to the Economic Research Service, we spend only 5.7 percent of our total household budgets on food. In the U.K. and Denmark, people spend about 10 percent, compared with 40 to 50 percent for people in less developed nations. Azerbaijan tops the chart at 50.4 percent.
