If we really knew the true number all the politicians would be out of work. http://www.shadowstats.com/article/no-438-public-comment-on-inflation-measurement [/quote] Inflation is corporate exploitation. The initiative of the dollar is [b]Deflation[/b], not Inflation. The reason is that the Federal Reserve charges interest on currency that [b]doesn't exist [/b]in the money supply. Therefore, corporate profits depend on a well trained consumer; one that [i]expects[/i] inflation. Be a good little sheep, and expect inflation. The dollar is a debt instrument, it represents a contract. The psychological expectation of Inflation allows the rise in prices [i]when there is not [/i]a 'Bottom up' wage and job growth effect; it therefore creates and expands the profit for corporations. The Fed Reserve and the US Gov't collects their cut from taxation; all a burden (hidden corprate, banking, and government taxes) on the population. [/quote]
1st thing I noticed, my wife and I have hardly changed anything about our buying and eating habits.
The 2nd thing I noticed was the crazy incrases we have had in prices.
1 can Campbells Vegetable soup was listed as $0.89
We now pay $2.19 for the same can.
Fresh Haddock Fillets were $3.99lb. Now $7.99lb.
4 litres of Skim Milk was $4.59...now $7.59.
1 loaf of whole wheat bread was $.99...now $2.99.
Fresh Green Pepper was $1.99lb...now $3.99lb.
Canned tomato juice was $0.99 a can...now $2.29 a can.
Obviously there was waaaaay more on the recipt, but I just can't believe the inflation. I'm sure many people have had to stop buying items the are used to buying, and change their life styles a great deal. I have not gotten to that point yet, but I'm feeling the pinch. It sucks.
Changes are needed.
