Slí Eile: The preoccupation of some economists and commentators with falling prices and how they impact on the 'lower income deciles' is noticeable. The latest entry on irisheconomy can be found here.
An alternative perspective can be found at the new 'poor can't pay' where some background papers have been made available.
There was a debate on this site last week

How many items showing price increases in the 'poor can't pay' Mission Statement have their prices controlled or set by the Government or a Government agency? It shouldn't be too hard to join the dots.
