Economical question

« previous entry | next entry »

Is there anything which has not gotten more expensive over the last few months? Anything - rice, milk, bread, power, gas... my rent, admittedly, has not gone up, but that's because it is fixed in a contract.

I would estimate that my living expenses have gone up at least 20% overall, and that is a conservative estimate.

(Oh, telecoms haven't gone up, but see also "fixed in a contract" there.)

I'm sure you'll realize a 20% increase in pay within the next 6 months or so to meet these increased living costs, no?

Oh right, it doesn't work that way.

I've noticed the price of bread has gone up, and my favorite Thai restaurant now charges $1 extra for rice.

And we are in a "developed" country. Imagine if you were in a "less-developed" country with a family to feed on a dollar a day.

It's only the beginning, mate. Peak oil? Been and gone and down the slippery slope. Get an allotment.

Oh! Oh! Oh! I know the answer to this question!

The price of HOUSES is going down. That's it, the only thing.

Hah, yes - not over here mind you (and my rent's certainly not going down).

well, so far, breathing's still free (unless you have some upper respiratory condition).
