Job Losses This Week

Recommended Posts

I usually add job losses to another ongoing post, but after completing it , I am astounded to see how many job losses there are just this week and felt it deserved its own unique topic.

Job losses have been increasing over the last few months gradually but the numbers this week are incredible !!!!!

Are we heading into recession or is it just co-incidence that this many losses have appeared.

Apologies for the long post ..

Increasing job losses, burgeoning bad debt, retail meltdown, oil price rising. All points to a recession for the UK in 2006.

But don't worry, house prices will start to rise again though because TTRTR, laurejon, KOTC, IMupNorth, and Horace all say so. lol.gif

Now now with all due respect to IMupNorth i dont think he thinks prices will shoot off and rise again, just an indefinate plateau until we recieve a economic shock. :D

Seeing your neighbour sell up because of debt might be shocking.

Chuz. I'm sure youre right about IupN but this theory some of them have about an indefinite/long-term plateauing out of house prices at the top of a massive bubble is almost as barmy as the idea that prices will start rising again next year. :rolleyes:
