May Inflation Number: Cesnared! (UPDATED)

You know how, normally, each months’ inflation figures get published on the first working day of the following month? Right. Did anybody else notice that we’re eight days into June already and the May inflation numbers still aren’t out?

Sure, Elías Eljuri talking airy non-sense about his hopes and dreams, that we’ve got. But an actual inflation report?…not so much.

Guess that Censorship Cesnar-ship Decree is up and running.

UPDATE: According to commenters who seem to follow this stuff, the delay’s not as unusual as I thought. (Has to do with the changeover to a nationwide price index, from a Caraco-centric one.)
