Updated Price Basket 2008 to 2012 now 45% higher
1. The basket of food items would have been lower than last year if detergent had not increased significantly
2. Average new home prices increased by close to 25% in the last 12 months which comes as a surprise in a flat housing market
3. It shocks me that overall the basket has increased by 45% in 4 years while government published figures show closer to 10% inflation over the same period.
4. During the same period gold has more than doubled in price from $820.00 to $1,720.00
