Barbecue Prices This Year versus Last Year +29%

Prices for a barbecue this year vs last year: +29%

Ground beef: +14%

Lettuce +28%

Tomatoes: +86%

Potato Salad: +27%

Corn on the Cob: +150%

Coffee: +20 %

This is really sad. Watch this CNBC video and see what $100 buys you.

But, you know there is an opposing view, provided earlier this year by Paul Krugman:

....there’s nothing here to suggest any reason to consider inflation a problem.
