[quote:Dr.DoomLittle:MV8yMDE3NTIzXzMzOTA5MjM2X0QyRDZBQUE3] [quote:Billy_Sastard:MV8yMDE3NTIzXzMzOTA2MTUwXzM3Q0EwNjFC] SO yeah, these increasing food prices are all too real, but what really bothers me is that, in this same 8 year period, my 'cost of living' raises have equaled a little more than $2 an hour. So let me get this straight, the cost of food and pretty much everything else has more than doubled in the last 8 years, yet pay rates have gone up less than 10%. How is this supposed to work? And is inflation not supposed to be reflected in the whole money system, and not just how much things cost?? Inflation is the devaluation of money, correct? So why did my pay not double in this amount of time? [/quote] corporate exploitation of the consumer expectation of inflation. Inflation if not measured in terms of real wage and job growth, or middle class wealth, is a phallacy; just corporate greed. [/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.
