    Default Prices in the New Year

    Today we were in Santiago. Between there & Jarabacoa we stopped in 3 grocery stores: La Sirena on the autopista and the two largest in Jarabacoa.

    In all 3 stores there were crews with those plastic label makers going in every aisle zapping cans, bags and boxes. Everything was getting new prices.

    We picked up a few normal items: bread, juices, some canned sauces and veggies, cheese, etc.

    The prices from last week are definitely higher. Rica sin OJ is RD$120, up from 105 last week! Bread RD$145, up from 125 last week! Everything cost more!

    I wonder how long before the poor folks who buy one egg and onion at a time at the colmado are going to feel the new pinch?

    We should have a poll: when will the tire burning start?

    I went to Playero tonight for a 250g President butter that was RD146 last week and tonight it was RD168. Other items were noticeably higher.

    The price increase is really going to hurt Dominicans.Many are having a hard time as it is trying
    to make ends meet.Nothing good will come of this.There's only so much they can take.

    those are pretty big increases percentage wise. prices usually are raised a little at a time... less noticeable that way.

    Yet the big chains are saying that they will eat the 2% and 8% tax increases....let's see how they do that...

    Today's Diario Libre headlines a story on that.

    Sure they will, that's why my receipt from Nacional and Bravo shows the 18% tax on items I bought yesterday.

    "The reform applies a 1% tax on all properties whose consolidated worth is of RD$6.5 million or higher,"

    How many people own land and have no cash? Like to see when the first "empresarios" come and take advantage of their situation after the taxman was there...
