PracticalDad Price Index: May 2013 Largely Unchanged
The 47 item PracticalDad grocery marketbasket was surveyed at the three separate grocery stores for May and the results show only a slight increase from April's results. With major central banks - the Federal Reserve, the Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank - going all out to push for inflation, there's little to show since the indices dropped from their December 2012 highs; indeed, they are slowly crawling up from February 2013 and the wait for inflation increasingly resembles a scene out of Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot.
