Hanson & Doremus Investment Management publishes the Hanson Index annually. The index is a fascinating 28-year price comparison for everything from shoe repair to babysitting in Burlington, VT.
H&D created the index to test the thesis that everyday proces were increasing much faster than the official Consumer Price Index (CPI).
Interesting observation: In summary – “things” have gone up a lot less in price than services over the past 28 years.
