Prices Soar As Wages Stagnate: Federal Reserve’s Damage Continues

The price of meat has not spiked this high in one month since November, 2003, according to Zero Hedge. It rose almost three percent in April.

Wholesale prices rose sharply last month, driven up partly by higher prices for meat and other foods.
The producer price index, which measures changes in the prices of goods and services that companies buy, increased 0.6% in April, the Labor Department said Wednesday.
