    As much as I might occasionally feel we should round up all the economists and throw them in jail, I don't actually mean it. However, they are thinking about doing that in Argentina. Why? Because they dare publish data contradicting the country's official statistics. This is why Argentina is an economic basket case.

    Usually when something effects the global economy in a great way the economist are the ones shaking their heads the most and the first.

    Peace on economists.

    Other than Harper that is ....

    Geese! Doesn't THAT SCAM sound familiar?

    According to THIS, the CPI rose only 1.6% in 2010


    Was that YOUR experience in 2010, folks?

    Did YOUR cost of living really only increase 1.6% in 2010?
