    Uh....yes....if you want a broad measure of inflation within a nation's economy........or else you could rely on some single data point skewed by exchange rates, VAT's, differing levels of inflation in other countries......and believe it reflects a measure of inflation within your own country.

    I won't stop you from believing that.

    The decline in US Manufacturing didn't happen overnight, and there has been 35,000 pages added to the Federal Register when America started running it's first set of trade deficits. To go through even a few would take all day. But for starters there is the Utility Maximum Achievable Control Technology rule and the Paid Sick Leave rule.

    It's more the cost of compliance than it is the regulations. Complying with workplace regulations cost an average of $2.2 million per manufacturing firm or about $1,700 per employee.

    Would it be too difficult to just say we need to put in place policies that would encourage manufacturers to do business in the country?

    Yes, they were wrong for many years but I finally overcame the brainwashing and succumbed to common sense and logic. That is why I understand the liberals on this thread and others.

    Actually, they do. But excuse me if I don't Cling on the words of some nobody on an internet forum too clueless to know better.

    Big Mac Index Shows Official CPI Underreports Inflation - Forbes

    Hon....PPP is not CPI, single data point is not CPI, the effect of value added taxes are not part of CPI, the effect of differing levels of inflation between countries is not in the CPI.....but all of those items are in the BMI.

    But you go on with your beloved BMI, I won't stop you.
    It doesn't just measures inflation between countries.

    But keep telling yourself that. I won't stop you.
