Slate: The Size of Shopping Carts

Often changes in very specific things in society reflect changes going on with the whole of society. Slate looks at how the size of shopping carts (the physical kind!) has changed over the decades and what we can deduce about society’s traits at the time with regards to income, time management, technological change and even our choice of pie! It’s pretty intriguing – the amount of extrapolation you can achieve with such a simple starting point. Thanks Fuzz *”*!
