Tariffs leading to price rises
I am not discussing the actual politics of possible rises in prices due to tariffs in the escalating trade war with China.
Instead there is plenty to be discussed about the price rises themselves. One funny one is a discussion I saw among a group of bicyclists about whether they should go ahead and treat themselves to a new bike because they anticipated price hikes due to tariffs. It is funny because some bicyclists will try to talk themselves and others into new bikes using any excuse they can think of. And some bikes now cost thousands (not mine).
I myself am not planning to change my current buying habits by buying up anything prior to an anticipated price rise. I have items I have canned and stored foods so already have as much as I want to store done.
If certain items skyrocket in price I will simply make do with others or do without. What about you?
