CPI is A great big lie
« on: February 14, 2023, 09:15:24 AM »
Last three months last year raised 3 months later when no one is looking ..they said it was going down to lower the rate on things like I-bonds but it was all a lie to help that thing last November

Higher today also..which will be adjusted even higher in a couple of months like they have been doing for a while now

Trust and believe them as far as you can throw them..

Back in 2015 I had two really sharp 8th grade cadets recreate a modified CPI by tracking the same products, not using alternates. They showed real inflation to be 9%-14%. This was back then. Today, closer to 20%.
