The cost of household appliances and TVs are part of the Inflation Index. It is well known fact that modern appliances and TVs last 1/3 -1/2 time as comparing to 10-20 years ago and every time we buy new item the government collects the taxes. Should we prorate the price of the item to it's durability and longevity? For example, if the stove price has not changed and is about \$1000, but it lasts only 1/3 of the time it used to work in the past, then its real price for the purpose of calculating the inflation index must be \$3000. Would you agree?
