It looks as if interest rates are to remain low for the forseeable future. Would our weakened economy be able to take increased rates as well as inflation?
Of course, either way the standard of living is slowly falling as the pound in your pocket begins to purchase less and less: as costs of pretty much all raw materials rise and speculators move more and more into commodities having messed up elsewhere and taken their profits. The growth of India and China as consumer economies will also impact on prices and the only way is up.
This has been a difficult period for many people including those who we would normally consider comfortable. If you’re unemployed then you’ll really be feeling the pressure and you have my sympathies: I’ve been there before and I know that it is one of the most awful experiences to go through. Not knowing when it will end (it will end so hang in there) and having a sense of worthlessness is no easy situation.
Even those in full employment are feeling the strain as we pay off all the credit cards and excesses of the last decade. I suppose it’s all relative and when you feel the pinch in your wallet then it doesn’t always matter to you that others are in an even worse position than yourself.
