UK year-ahead inflation expectations fall - Citi
8:01, Thursday 31 March 2011
LONDON (Reuters) - Inflation expectations for the year ahead fell in March to 3.5 percent, from a two-year high of 3.6 percent in February, a survey by Citi/YouGov (LSE: YOU.L - news) showed on Thursday.

I suppose austerity and overall skintness/job losses will eventually cause prices to fall whether the sellers like it or not. Wages are key and I don't see much real pressure in that area.....yet.

When a star starts to run-out of its fuel it starts to swell and cool until it becomes unstable then it rapidly [and explosively] collapses into a small dense and cold neuron star or black hole - sucking everything that comes near to destruction.

Oh good - I'm getting poorer at a slower rate than before.

No you're not, it's just this time next year people expect you be getting poorer at a slightly slower rate.

indeed. If it does drop by 0.1%, don't expect anyone to discuss the fact that it's still waaaaaay over the 2% target. It'll be "phewwww, inflation threat CANCELLED"

You know what gets me is how we now have to look at CPI for inflation whereas before it was RPI. And everybody has automatically made the switch. What is this brainwashing? The media are complete puppets.

We ARE living in 1984... seriously...
