Some of the actual data: Food inflation is running 18.2% year-over-year, led by meat and poultry (49%) eggs (23.4%) and vegetables (22.5%).
Health care in China was low (2.3%) — hey, its a communist state, and those costs are fixed by the Central government.
Also low: Booze and cigarettes — 1.7% year-over-year, (mostly because they do not carry the new ultra-premium vodkas we have here).
Transportation & communication were negative. Why are these two lumped together? I strongly doubt that the price drops in telecommunication equipment offset the rise in Crude Oil and gasoline prices. Oh, wait, those prices are also fixed by the central planners. (Communism defeats inflation? How long can that last for?).
Residences gained 4.3%.
There is a sad element to this: Why is it that Communist propagandists at the National Bureau of Statistics of China are at least as truthful about price increases, if not more so, than we are here in America . . .
