The RBA has made a bleak prediction today, warning the nation that they are about to cop a massive, steaming load of the kind of prices experienced during the WA mining boom.
A spokesperson for the RBA said they regretted that the current financial climate would almost certainly see the price of goods & services rise. However, no one could predict just how much. Adding,
“It’s a good time for everyone in Australia to reach out to a Western Australian friend and ask them for advice on dealing with $7 coffees and $60 steak dinners that resemble a gristly dog dick served with 5 chips”
We spoke to one of many survivors of the WA boom who said paying $12.50 for a Swanny D the other weekend brought back some tough memories. Adding,
“Yeah dunno if the nation is ready for the full extent of it. I remember there was a lot of excitement around the boom until we realised that non-miners weren’t earning any more coin. It was just heinous for us, never forget the $15 pint of Asahi in Hillarys”
On the advice of a boomtown survivor, a lad in Melbourne has started buying 2 coffees at a time in the morning to adjust to the inevitable slaughter. He told The Times,
“I want to get to a point where spending $8 on some coffee doesn’t make me want to go postal. Hopefully, it won’t get to 8 but even if it goes as high as 6.50, I’ll be somewhat adjusted”
Documenting the Human Zoo is thirsty work, so if you enjoyed what you read how about buying Belle a beer, ay?
