Inflation: an excuse not to eat greens

Inflation as measured by the consumer price index increased 3.7 percent in October, compared to the same month last year, according to the National Institute of Statistics. Food prices – which represent over 43 percent of the index – were up 4.6 percent in October 2010 compared to 2009. Chicken prices increased 6.1 percent, fish was up 9.9 percent, and leaf and stalk vegetables – as displayed in Psar Chas in Phnom Penh yesterday – climbed 15.2 percent.
