You missed the point (I wasn't comparing inflation rates, rather
perspectives of people inside the US vs people outside the US)
I'm not interested in arguing with your statistics - what I'm
experiencing is nothing like 3.4% - but that may only reflect a
difference between the way the number is produced and my real world
[ The majority of my spending is for clear hardwood, plywood, glue,
solar glazing, stock aluminum extrusions, stainless steel screws,
carbide cutting tools, OTR shipping, and the usual gasoline,
electricity, phone/dsl, natural gas, rent, and groceries. ]
I wish /I/ were seeing your 3.4% - and (probably) so do my customers.
