It seems that the products making up the "inflation basket", that imaginary shopping basket representing the 700 most popular domestic purchases in the UK has been changing of late. Out are goods such as yoghurt drinks (good riddance), Sat Nav devices (not much point when most phones do the job) and frozen pizza. What's taken the place of these un-vogue products are things like protein powders (frozen pizza substitute?) and craft beer! Now that I can get on board with. All I need now is for good craft beer to become pervasive and cheap and for fine wines to fall out of favour with the Chinese so that they become affordable again, vive le progres!
