It depends on what Y is. Think about your own (hypothetical) personal situation. Let's say all of your spending is on hookers and blow and that 5 years ago, your personal budget was in balance. If, during that period, your hooker spending has gone up 10% and your income (Y) has doubled, but you're running out of money 10 days before your monthly paycheck and having to borrow from your trust fund to make it to payday. You've got a cocaine spending problem not a hooker spending problem.
