<<Then again, if people pay more for their Starbucks and beer and start thinking all prices are heading higher, expectations may edge up, which wouldn't be all that terrible for a central bank worried about ultra-low inflation.>>
So who are the winners in THIS game? Sure doesn't sound like the consumer. While unemployment stays high and wages stay stagnant, prices go up so more of the consumer's earnings are sucked away.
It would be a cold day in Hell before I'd spend 4.00 on a cup of coffee and Starbuck's would have gone bankrupt years ago if they'd been waiting on me to buy their overpriced products, but for those people with more money than brains where is your limit?

The economy would do very well ---- if not for the ZIONIST BANKSTERS and the OFF HEBES ....... ABRAMOFF / MADOFF / CHERTOFF and the Zionist Fifth Column that owns John Boehner and the GOP - ISRAELI POODLES ......... Never forget the cowardly Israeli attacks on the USS LIBERTY , WTC , Lavon Affair and the current zionist assault on WALL ST ......... GOLDMAN SACHS / AIG / RAPHAN ACOUSTICS and PERMINDEX are Israeli stooges .
