Is it bias that a cup of coffee went from 100 pesetas to 1€ an increase of 40%? (burntstump)

No, burntstump, though any single example may be correct, the bias in general comes from selectively recollecting outrageous examples of increases and selectively forgetting instances of decreases. But you could tell that from my post, couldn't you?
