Been in business since 1976 and seen prices skyrocket. Still at the top of the pile are books. A 200 page paperback issued in 1971 has a price sticker on it of 22c or 10p. The same (sized) book today is R280. I used to buy 4 core comms cable for R9,00 a 100m reel, today it is R190,00. Yet copper was $1.04/kg in 1976 and is only $5.50/kg today.
According to Stats SA, the rate of increase is increasing as well, so we need to get used to it. Still £50 for a turntable belt is astonishing
