Friday 15 Dec 2006: Cost of Living Extremely Well Index
People with (a lot) more to spend than the average person will not get a good measure of the changes in their cost-of-living from the normal Consumer Price Index. They can look at the Forbes CLEWI (Cost of Living Extremely Well Index) instead. This price index includes the cost of things like a dinner at La Tour d'Argent in Paris, an Olympic-size swimming pool, a Sikorsky helicopter, a face-lift and a Patek Philippe watch. The cost of a round trip New York-London by Concorde also used to be part of this special basket of consumer goods.
