Recommended Posts

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/retailandconsumer/8352659/The-foods-suffering-the-biggest-price-rises-in-pictures.html

Swiss bank UBS has claimed that food prices in Britain are rising quicker than in most developed economies and by more than is justified by higher costs. Here we look at the foods that have been hit by the biggest price rises.

Fruit

Fruit has seen the biggest price rise in the UK, with prices jumping 12pc.

Oil and fats

Oil prices have risen sharply, by 11.9pc, with palm oil enduring one of the biggest gains.

Fish

The cost of fish saw a 10pc leap.

Sugar, jam and chcocolate

Sugar, jam and chcocolate has risen by 8pc. ABF has warned of rising sugar costs later this year following a harsh winter. It said sugar production had fallen from 1.3m tonnes last year to just below 1m tonnes this year.

Still glad to see the vigilant Mystic Merv ensuring the workers don't get higher wages. His vigilance and protecting the UKs purchasing power we couldn't ask for a better person to run the central bank.

Food is still far too cheap and contributed to HPI as more serfs could speculate this 'extra' disposable income that they wouldnt otherwise have had on houses instead of it being used to feed, dress and keep the family warm in their homes. You can't have excessively lending without masked affordability.

So deliberatly stoke inflation

Dont give pay rises

House prices to stay flat (so people think everything is OK,)

Everything sorted

......except, looks like the perfect storm with food prices going up, energy costs going up.

With this as a backdrop, if house prices fall and with inflation.

Not a nice position, people are going to start getting annoyed

They shouldn't have got themselves into this much mess in the first place. The blame rests squarely on the shoulders of those that indebted themselves at the expense of others (HPI) and themselves (debt). There are no winners here.

Yeah, yeah, yeah all that fractional bubble sh1t as well. The government are in my debtors prison with all the others. Just seems like paradise for the moment. Watching John Prescott on Topgear earlier, goes to show how deluded they all were. ;)

i've just assumed it was linked to low yields of many things the last few yrs but mostly on synthertic oil prices..

in some cases a direct cost of growing product (takes machiner and pesticided) getting product from A to B

stupid transportation costs, like flying english apples to spain to be sprayed with wax then flying them back again.

bringing up costs in line with the oil (there was av ery short period it was a lot cheaper to run a diesel car/van on cooking oil, margin soon closed.

etcetc

interesting that we're feeling it more than the rest though, perhaps it is all because of the snow ;)

Yep, he was in complete denial. You could see he really thought Labour brought wealth to the nation.

I find that a bit more worrying than the other option.

He is just a selfish politician who will happily lie to cover his own ****** ups ? Not great but not exactly a great surprise.

He actually thinks that debt = wealth: and he was in such a powerful position for so long ?

******ing frightening.

India

Rising food prices remained a big concern in India’s fast-growing economy, according to economists. Food inflation jumped to 15.7 per cent in January from 13.6 per cent the previous month.

India suffers the highest inflation of any big Asian economy. The Reserve Bank of India has raised interest rates seven times over the past year in a bid to cool rising prices while maintaining an economic growth rate of 8.5 per cent.
