Food prices

Whenever food prices go up in one of the quarterly surveys, cue the news stories on how bad it is that food prices went up. When food prices drop, crickets.

Anyway, Aaron Schiff's got a handy new tool out to provide a sense of perspective. It tracks the nominal prices of the different food items that StatsNZ tracks. Here's the nominal price of mild cheddar, going back rather a while.
