Buying an individual TIPS ladder...

While TIPS sound great (inflation HAS to happen sooner rather than later) the way the government is calculating it, TIPS won't help. They keep poo-pooing/ignoring food and energy thus falsely keeping inflation near zero. I'm sorry, but everywhere I look more money is leaving my bank account.
