Wages == food costs + energy costs + housing costs

Food costs - up and nothing you can do about it

Land owners got the uplift when productivity went up (and when credit went nuts), now they can take the hit.

Soar is probably not the right word. It's at 201.9, and it's been at 198 for a week. "Inch" "crawl" etc.

I’m hoping it increases way more so that more and more people who drive fossil fuelled cars and neglect their greenhouse gas emissions just for a comfortable commute end up finally opting for more sustainable methods of transportation.
