Yes, yes, wages are the problem prices are not… October 15, 2012

Posted by proeconomia in Main, News on Greece, On the crisis, Opinion.

OK, this is is Greek (you can translate it of course online) and says the following: given an average inflation rate of 5% over the past two years the price increases on basic goods reached over 25%!!! Now, for the first 8 months of 2012 the following goods were more expensive (over the previous year) as: sugar by 15% (its so bad for you so do not use it), sodas by 8.2% (also very bad for your health, do not drink them), fruit juices by 7% (they are not that bad but hey, get into a diet), eggs by 6.8% (they are high on cholesterol, why do you insist on eating them?), coffee by 6% (you should find other methods for staying awake at work) fresh fruits by 5.7% (you can live for a couple of years without them), frozen fish by 4.5% (they are from polluted waters, right?), fresh milk by 4.4% (what is this?), and so on. You see, wages are the problem because price increases were introduced for health and safety reasons! There is always a bright side on things, maybe you should see that side instead of this constant whinning?
