Karl, wasn't real estate taken out of Inflation reports at some point back in the 80's due to their fast rising and undesired affect on those Inflation numbers?|
If so, I'm a little surprised they didn't bake them back in to today's formula since about 2005, even retroactively. This hasn't even been trotted out.
'And if you account for the collapse in real estate, inflation has decreased blah blah blah'.
I think I'm gonna explain Hedonics to the kids tonight.
