Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
ie claims that basic goods (like the daily espresso) got a massive bump when priced in euros rather than the earlier currency. It's never been visible in inflation statistics, but it's led to endless bitching and moaning - maybe because it probably did apply to goods like espresso, which are highly visible (you buy some every day) but meaningless in terms of overall spending power.
