But from the usual population this term causes genuine interest. Though jokes and jokes about it too not to consider, as this concept not always corresponds to the Russian reality. So, for example, that fact is interesting that the consumption level this year coincides with 2006. It means that it is periodically necessary to reconsider parameters of this indicator that it was not created funny situations, and the simple population the beginning seriously treats this indicator. Instead of was interested in "consumer basket" only for satisfaction of curiosity.
