RE: Can someone explain why brittish Speaker prices rose

Oil, wheat, corn, cocoa beans and frozen concentrated orange juice are internationally traded commodities. Their prices are partially dependent upon currency valuations.

Loudspeakers, clothing, magic rocks, etc. are not internationally traded commodities, and their prices are determined by the whims of the manufacturer, the importer, and what people are willing to pay. If people on the Audio Asylum and other forums would stop talking about Harbeth, may the price would come down. ;)

I remember when the U.S. dollar was at something like 5 French Francs (when there was a French Franc) and I could buy a bottle of Mouton Cadet Bordeaux wine for about $9. Even though the dollar is now in the toilet, I can still buy a bottle of Mouton Cadet Bordeaux for about $9.
