Definitely true, but also a fair percentage of those pre-globalisation prices are based on the fact the Australian dollar had historicaly traded at roughtly 25% lower vs the US dollar than it has been the last few years (averaged about 75-80c to as low as 50c), add a 10% tax that is also added to all goods and services and you're getting fairly close to the 52% we're being overcharged. Mind you this isnt a defence of the system just a bunch of related contributing factors that make me feel these good times we're experience with increased purchasing power probably wont last forever, but I do feel retailers here should be attempting to "meet us in the middle" a bit more so to speak, some are but others refuse.
