The author reflects on the difficulties faced by consumers amidst increasing inflation in the U.S. He illustrates the situation by making an American shopper who has efficiently handled the situation as an example. He finds the consumer more ideal if she sought to avoid bread, milk, and eggs which have relatively increased in prices. He summarizes that a dream consumer in the country is one who constantly hangs out in chat rooms, watches television, and features a skinny body.
