  2. What is the Real Definition of Inflation? Webster's 1983 Definition of Inflation According to Webster's New Universal Unabridged Dictionary published in 1983 the second definition of "inflation" after "the act of inflating or the condition of being inflated" is: "An increase in the amount of currency in circulation, resulting in a relatively sharp and sudden fall in its value and rise in prices: it may be caused by an increase in the volume of paper money issued or of gold mined, or a relative increase in expenditures as when the supply of goods fails to meet the demand. This definition i

  4. I was in an economics lecture a few years ago and the lecturer gave the analogy that British management are like the scum/crap when you are having a bath it rises to the top. From my experience in the aircraft manufacturing industry i would say that this is partly true, I have had some great managers who asked you to do something and you respected them, because they too could also do the skilled job you being asked to perform, but the majority were useless and were basically found a management position because they could not do the skilled job themselves . Subsequently the factory closed
  5. Most people in the UK do not want to know how much their house has fallen this month, economic meltdown or the deaths of innocent civilians in war torn countries. They are happy not knowing these things so the BBC are happy to feed them "no" news items. I think its to do with the education system.

  7. British Aerospace before BAESYSTEMS used to manufacture civil aircraft like ATP, 146 etc but due to lack of investment in previous decades in jigs, fixtures etc resulting in crap interchangability of parts resulting in poor reputation from customers they cancelled civil aircraft programmes and turned to more profitable defence projects. At least the handy work of people who decided to switch from civil to defence projects helped in this scenario. Is private ownership of a country's Central Bank a good thing? Throughout history, there has been a concerted effort by 'Money Lenders' to co
