Thread: The Irish Times - Weekend Prices up 2%

  1. #1

    Default The Irish Times - Weekend Prices up 2%

    just noticed The Irish Times - Weekend edition now costs €2.30. Last time I looked a few weeks a go it was €2.25. A price increase of more than 2.2%. Well above the inflation rate and surely not the last increase we will see in 2013.

    Don't worry. You can get it for free online and because you get the same enjoyment, the compilers of the CPI will make a hedonic adjustment and it will show up as deflation.

    Doubt if Conor Pope will be saying too much about it.

    I'd say the IT will not drive the CPI since the paper is not part of basket of goods and services used by the CSO to measure inflation. neither is petrol and alcohol...

    does anyone have a link to the new full CSO list of items in the basket?

    Aldi toilet paper is only €2.69 for nine rolls and is so much softer for wiping.

    Political pamphlets like IT should be free.
    This sig would be more impressive in Latin.
