    well the real question actually is "does it lead to devaluation." these types of hikes are not done willingly and are an omen for "something wicked this way comes." in other words "you don't charge more for the same cheeseburger unless you feel you have to"...or you think it's what the Government wants. obviously the Government says it wants inflation...well, "here it comes."
