The topic of inflation has come up many times but I think it is time to renew it. My health insurance will go up 16.7% next month. It will increase again at the end of the year. Prices of almost everything increase constantly. For the first time I have begun to feel the effects of inflation here which I believe to be about 30% Some will say "leave" and they may be right. At some point they too may decide to leave! I can't believe that all expats here are so rich that they can absorb this inflation indefinitely.
