As of yesterday, prices of food in Slovenia are higher some 10 to 15 percent. A tug-of-war has erupted between the retailers and the food industry as to who is to blame, with both being equally interested to blame the other guy. Mercator, the largets retail chain in Slovenia even published a list of producers, their products and increase in prices..
Meanwhile, in his bat lair, the PM is calling upon the dark powers to help him find those responsible for this staggering increase in prices and correspondingly high inflation.
Please, read the previous sentence carefully. The PM and his ministers (Dumb & Dumber) are actually trying to find out who is to blame!!! What are they going to do? Pull out their nails? Tickle them until prices are lowered again? Make them listen to Damjan Murko? What?!?
I want my government to stop wining about it and start taking measures to curb the looming inflation shock. Instead, Janša et al. are (as per custom) busy looking for the enemy within, yet at the same time claiming that there is no cause for worry, but that they will take appropriate measures.
And while they are at socialist-speak (the last paragraph being a case in point), they might as well go for broke and reinstate price control. You know, just to get that special feeling of economic downfall we are about to experience anyhow.
