#Anonymous on Jun 11, 2014 :
I stand corrected on my estimate for 1 kg of white rice in Knoxville, TN.

My earlier figure of 4.41$ per 1 kg was about 10.00$ under the current average price at my local Food City.
The correct figure, including .0725% combined state plus local sales tax, actually works out to be 13.98$.

Regarding my estimate of 25.00$ for 1 pair of Nike shoes (model not specified), my estimate was based on the assumption that socially responsibly adult males should not purchase and wear (free advertising) clothing or footwear tainted by a history of past abuses of third world child labor paying micro cents on the dollar compared to what a displaced adult American worker would be rightfully paid, were the labor not taken offshore for the sake of increased profit at the expense of lowered quality of the lives for those whose jobs were pulled out from under them, along with the worker’s families, and in many cases, generations of parents and grandparents who proudly produced finished goods, of a high quality, while loyally sacrificing their prime years, for both the family at home, as well as the family at work—with the approval, funding and collusion from investment bankers, as well as the blessing of tax incentives from homeland legislators who allegedly are sworn to protect and defend the interests of the very citizens whose job markets, national infrastructure, and personal financial security were collaterally sacked and laid waste by cronyism, special interest, favoritism, and remorseless platitudes of legalistic excuses and haughty deceptions.

Therefore, since you guys have chosen to include the Nike brand as as a measure of comparison in your “cost of living” metrics, I made my own judgment call, that call being my personal assumption regarding the circumstances and parameters under which I would ever be forced to buy a “pair of Nike shoes.”

It would only be a pair of shoes for a child whose personal competence in moral reasoning lacked the wisdom and maturity necessary to weigh personal desire against responsible behavior in the context of being a citizen of the Universe, not just an individual for whom “doing the right thing” only applies when all parties affected by a matter of good conscience are present, or even aware of the complicity of one’s actions, either in support of their stake, or positioned some other direction.
Given the relentless growth of the developing pre-adolescent human frame, especially that of the feet, and coupled with the engineered obsolescence of low-end expensive children’s footwear, it would be doubly damning to drop big bills on something with a product life of six months or less. Therefore, I’d be looking for something currently on sale at a big box store.
To my credit, my estimate of 25.00$ was spot on. Checking the local sales, I found a perfect match to my imaginary constraints: Nike Speedsweep VII - Boys' Grade School was 41.99$ now on sale for 24.99$ at The Foot Locker. Of course, then you have to tack on the combined state and local sales tax of .0975%, bringing the total to 27.43$.
