tlenon: The government cooks the books on the inflation numbers. It chooses what to include and not include in the calculation.
Necronic: Came for a helium shortage reference. Left dissapointed.deflated
uberaverage: Because prices of TV's and computer's are dropping, while groceries are going up.
ferretman: Because people don't seem to understand that some jobs should have a maximum wage (hourly/salary). When their pay goes over a certain amount the additional costs are passed onto the consumer. (Which makes people need more money and then they get another raise...which the costs are then passed onto the consumer). It also doesn't help when money is being printed on a 24/7 basis.
