Inflation, one million more poor people.  Food and bills weigh more on households’ budgets

ROMA – Inflation widens absolute poverty, which is measured by the family’s ability to bear the essential and incompressible expenses for living, from food to rent, from health care to heating. Because it is the tax of the poor par excellence and it erodes the purchasing power especially of those most in need. Well, if this year prices flew to + 6% (the government estimates + 5.8%), Italy would count one million more absolute poor, equivalent to over 400,000 families sucked up by the inability to face the day for day, from expensive bills to expensive expenses.
