Billion Prices Project

MIT's Billion Prices Project attempts to measure inflation from a basket of prices scraped from the web.

It seems to follow the CPI fairly well.
Clearly, it seems to be predicting a big increase in CPI. Looking forward to seeing how accurate this is when January CPI comes out on February 17th.
