The price of food. Cartoon of 18/03/2023 in CTXT
The Bank of Spain, which is not characterised by its social attitude, is already predicting that the price of food will rise by an average of 12.2% this year. Hold on tight to your shopping trolleys as there are sharp curves of plunder ahead.
The vice-president, Nadia Calviño, acknowledges that prices are once again out of control and that new measures are being considered to curb them, without specifying, as always, how they are going to get their hands on the matter.
According to the INE, food and non-alcoholic beverages rose by 16.6% in February compared to the same month last year, despite the VAT reduction. Who knew! “⸮”.
Meanwhile, Juanito Roig continues to be adored, claiming that he is very concerned about inflation and that he has done us all a huge favour by only raising his products by a huge amount (instead of a beastly amount) so that the domestic economy does not become even more chaotic than it is now. Let me hug you tight, Juanito. You deserve it.
