The government of Cyprus is considering condoms for its list of consumer goods that are tracked for gauging inflation:
A Cypriot statistics official said the department was planning to add condoms to its list to improve the quality of inflation data in the country, seen as the birth place of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty…
“It was one of those items which was always under-represented by households so we got the data from the importers,” he said.
Medgadget will follow the diplomatic row likely to erupt between the governments of Cyprus and Vatican.
Actually, when we first heard about inflation and condoms, we thought of this …seminal study… from one of our old mentors.
