Not a valid comparison. Would you, in 2017, want to drive a car, or live in a house built to 1917 standards using only materials and technology available in 1917? I wouldn't. Bottom line, houses and cars built today are so much better in every respect.

Same thing for the food. Until the author compares the cost to produce, market, and transport those things it doesn't hold water.

A better comparison would be the relative profit margins on those things. But that probably wouldn't fit the author's agenda. So...
