For the 25 million plus people who don't have jobs in the U.S., it doesn't matter what this article says will cost less in 2014 because.......... no job = no money to spend
"What will cost less in 2014?"
Human labor. Expect more jobs outsourced to third world countries with the cheapest work force.
Bonds? smart phones? used cars for $15,600? Many things will be a lot cheaper for me next year because I can't afford any of them. Because I am being forced to pay more taxes (health insurance), and make my, once very adequate, pension go farther just so I can just put food on the table.
Not to mention that EVERYTHING has increased in prices by at least 25-50?% in the last 5-9 years and wages have pretty much stayed the same for most of us?
So really, they will cost less as long as you hope and change!
What a joke. Inflation is kicking all of the middle and low class individuals in the **** and it is just getting worse. The fed is printing twenty billion dollars a week just to jack up the economy and keep it from collapsing. Not included in the inflation quotient is the increase in the price of energy and food of which just happen to be two of the most expensive items we have to buy. Unemployment numbers are bullshlt as there are just as many or more leaving the workforce numbers and not counted each month as there are counted when hired. Most of these jobs are minimum wage jobs anyway. All the American public get's is more and more lies from the government. The whole thing is a big joke period.
Opps, and I forgot your BIG loaf of franz bread shrunk by 25% as well as my favorite o boy oberto snack, those cocktail peperoni's came up 2-3 inches shorter and 2-3 less in a package?
HOPE AND CHANGE people! GET A CLUE!
RESEARCH AND VOTE FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE BUSINESS EDUCATIONS, not political science, lawyers, wanna be filthy stinking rich like ????? The USA is a HUGE business if not the largest on the planet, is it any wonder we are in the dumps with the types you keep electing? WAKE UP AND GET A CLUE? Political science is just learning to get your way alike lawyering by anyway including LYING and WRITING LIES DOWN FOR YOU TO BELEIVE! And when that fails they know you all have a price to sell your soul, and now with the nsa crap going on if nothing else they will blackmail things there way if they can!
I started buying bonds for each of my 6 grandchildren but stopped when you couldn't purchase them at our local banks. I want the bond (Paper) in hand to give to the grandchildren not order them online. That will hurt bond sales more than interest dropping.
Just one of the many problems we're facing...
Minimum wage in 1963 was five silver quarters, amounting to $1.25. 50 years later, those five silver quarters at today's (12/30/2013) value would be worth $17.75!!!!
