Island Canuck inflation Index closes at 59.7% in 2010

January 23, 2011

Our friend and reader Island Canuck sent me a while back his final numbers for inflation in 2010. Recall that at the end of June the expat sent us his numbers and inflation was running at a 30% clip for the first half of the year. Well, despite the fact that there was no devaluation in the second half of 2010, his food and beverage index essentially doubled in 2010 as you can see in the table below. Note that most vegetables had triple digit increases in the year (They are mostly produced locally). Note also that things that are not available had small increases. Any insights by readers are welcome.
