If you got 15 percent less for basically the same price, would you not call this a price rise?

    Yepper! – 12 oz. vs. 16 oz. coffee; chocolate – not only just smaller candy bars @ the same price , but, Hershey’s Kisses with fresh, tasty, new AIR pumped in ‘em! :

    More like ‘Kiss My Miserable Dick’ if ya ask me. Which nobody ever does, but, still…

    It’s called hidden inflation probably caused by commodity speculation with counterfeit money (so-called “credit”).

    From Positive money -
    Paul Moore is the man who warned HBOS they were about to go under back in 2005. Naturally the board of HBOS ignored him. The 20 minute interview with Paul Moore below reveals just how the banks operate and why leaving them with the power to create money can be disastrous. He answers some crucial questions like “Do the guys at the top of the banks understand that bank lending creates new money?, “Do they consider the impact they have on economy?” WATCH HERE.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sn_tP87QDnU&list=UU82By0y-2ZdjigNu5bWY4LQ&index=1&feature=plpp_video

    @Hegelian Dialectic, don’t forget the ?presumably high pressure water injected bacon/prawns/squid/fish etcetera etcetera, shrinking to up to a quarter of their original size. Its funny really I just googled why it would happen and many people accept it as the norm as part of the cooking process, they are brain washed I tells you! A good fish monger for example does not sell incredible shrinking prawns.

    That shrinking feeling — 10 downsized products

    I hate that some of the stuff is cheaper quality (like toilet paper, pink slime hamburger, meat glue). The fact that all this deception is so tightly coordinated also bothers me. You never see advertisements saying”New and Improved, NOW 15% less product”.

    You know when your dealing with desperate Physcopaths when they would rather risk Hyper inflation than admit they all screwed the system with what has to be the biggest case of crimnal fraud and gross negligence ever witnessed in human history!

    Bernake Et al and the majority of the 535 in the Gov are running out of time!

    Just like taxes; you pay more bet get less services from the government.

    It’s all for the good of our health so we eat less? Nice quote FB.

    No, It’s just a Handy, more (no pun intended) convient size.
    They haven’t tried this a Gallon or Litre of Liquid Gold yet, maybe a MiniGal will catch on.

    God bless the Federal Reserve’s policy. America is extremely obese, less is better. America will be a lean, mean, fighting machine just in time for WWIII.

    This site read my mind. I bought a bag of my favorite potato chips today Kettle Sea Salt & Vinegar and the bag was filled with air and a little bit of chips! I was pissed! Never again… I’ll make my freak’own if I have to!

    Youtube “Fuzzy Numbers” if you want a good explanaition of how government numbers work.

    I used to smoke cigarettes. I payed 49 SEK for a pack of Prince. I stopped smoking when they started to have 19 cigarettes in the pacnstead o0. Same price less tobacco. Now I use Snus instead.

    I used to pay about 750 SEK per month for cigarettes, now I pay 180 SEK for Snus that gives me the same amount of nicotine. The EU wants to banish Snus, even though its way healthier than cigarettes.

    If you have the luxury of buying crackers instead of making your own bread and/or crackers yourself, you are doing fine.

    Crackers are overpriced as it is.

    I don’t believe the .4 or .0004 inflation baloney the government comes up with. When I married my wife in 2002, gasoline was $1 per gallon. No joke. Now it is almost $4 or is $4 a gallon in the US. I call that a 400% inflation rate in the price of gas over the last 10 years. 0.4% my ass. Move that decimal over 3 places. Also who cares about 1 month? Deceivingly small number. Like a kid telling the parent he failed one test when he is failing the whole class.
    Let’s say I gave you $100 cash in 2002, and told you if you could retain the buying power until 2012 you could keep the money, but if you loose buying power by 2012, I get the money back. More than likely you will loose. Almost all of us indeed have. One way to win would be gold. At the end of 2002 gold was about $400 an ounce, in 2012 it is bouncing at $1600 per ounce range. The exact ratio of inflation on the dollar, so if you took the $100 cash and bought gold, you succeeded in not getting raped, and you can keep the money. I mean gold.
    I like the idea and concept of the Big Mac Index, truly an American index, but it falls short in one area…. the Big Mac of 2012 is not the same as it was in 1995 unlike a gallon of gas or milk. Anyone have an adjusted big mac index?

    Come on you people, you are all so negative. This is probably the best thing that could happen to fight off obesity. Smaller packages, same price, no more fat Americans.
