Von Briefmarken und Hamburgern - Über die Möglichkeiten und Tücken internationaler Preisvergleiche


  • Christian Jaag


Die Höhe der Preise für Konsumgüter in der Schweiz gibt immer wieder und insbesondere aufgrund der aktuellen Frankenstärke zu Diskussionen Anlass. Dies gilt auch und insbesondere für die Briefpreise in der Schweiz. Die Preise im Monopolbereich der Post müssen sich jährlich wiederkehrend einem internationalen Preisvergleich der Postregulationsbehörde stellen. Im vorliegenden Dokument werden verschiedene Möglichkeiten und Grenzen internationaler Preisvergleiche diskutiert.
