Shadowstats doesn't engage in hedonics which substitutes to adjust for inflation. That is, instead of the $5 premium brand of whatever, you get the generic $1 brand. It also doesn't engage in discarding of elements that would drag down the inflation. Shadowstats does things the way it was done and is more honest than what the Bureau of Labor and Statistics do. Hence, it is more credible and gives a more reliable look at the state of the nation. Thank you!
