Inflation by stealth

I had a crack at making some herbed meatballs for dinner last night, and I went to the supermarket to get some of the ingredients. The recipe book called for a 440g tin of tomato soup, but all I could find was a 420g tin.

I'd always heard of how manufacturers did one of two things over time to bump the price: raise the price, or reduce what you got for your money. This was the first time I'd seen an example of the latter first hand.

Bad inflation. No donut for you.
