Sweet Tooth Economics

As I wrote last month, inflation can take two guises:  paying more for the same item; or, paying the same for less.   See, “Kaplan Family Price Index.”

Both types were on display at the Uptown Minneapolis Lunds today.

Their (Dutch) brownies — the best in town — just jumped from $2 to $2.50.

Meanwhile, I swear that their Long Johns (still 99¢) just got .  . .  a little less long.
