  1. Consider that during World War II, consumer goods were scarce, rationed, or nonexistent. My family was delighted to get rid of our 1937 Plymouth and buy a new 1955 Studebaker after the war. As I recall, we also bought a console phonograph-radio and a new sewing machine.

    Men were home from overseas, we had a baby-boom, and factories were making consumer goods again.
