Food prices are a supply and demand issue. Back in the 50s, lean beef was cheaper than the marbled, fatty beef; because people just preferred the taste of fat in their meat back then. It was considered a luxury and a sign of prosperity to eat the more fattening foods. Keeping in mind that this was just after the Great Depression and the WW2 food rationing. Lean meat was something for poor people, so it wasn't as desirable to eat; thus it was the cheap stuff.
