Graphic of inflation components in the USA

On 3 May 2008 the New York Times carried a graphic showing the components of consumer price inflation in the United States in the year to March 2008.

In a story similar to New Zealand, as might be expected oil and dairy price rises feature. What is not catching the headlines are the areas that are seeing price falls.

Contributing to the graphic was Michael Balzer at the University of Konstanz in Germany.
