Since 2000, inflation has risen by 35%. Let's look at a few things that have exceeded that rate.
17. RENT - 43%
Unless you're living in NYC, (in which case your rent has probably gone up by about 999999%) rent prices have increased a tad bit more than the rate of inflation.... Not horrible.
16. MOVIE, THEATER, & CONCERT TICKETS - 44%
15. COFFEE - 45%
I’ll have a tall half-skinny half-1 percent extra hot split quad shot (two shots decaf, two shots regular) latte with whip; hold the coffee.
14. CABLE TELEVISION - 49%
You mean 30 shows about weddings isn't enough?
