There is a widely held idea that our growing inflationary difficulties all come from abroad. It is fuel prices and not domestic factors that are pushing prices upwards.
It would be so much easier if that were true. Producer price inflation is now up at 9 percent. The PPI has a sub-index that covers home produced food. During the last six months, the index has grown alarmingly. In April, home produced food inflation was growing at 32 percent.
