Well it is a problem when the basket shows a favourable rate that isn't indicative of most people's situation.
I see what you mean and I am with you (really) but "basket of goods" is in economics which I don't really understand. If you guys are well versed with it, perhaps you guys can send ideas about some model that will work in SA environment.Well if you come up with your own basket it needs to be realistic. I can not consists of 1 item that went up a lot. If you do it properly you should get about the same results. I'm sure if that's not the case someone would have done it and published better inflation figures by now.
