Yields, Savings Returns, Wage Rises, This Is A Long Game!

Recommended Posts

Index-linked gilts, the mainstay of Merv's pension fund, have done OK. For example:

Rather telling how the mainstream media totally ignored the BoE pension fund decision to buy index linked Gilts back when the ongoing crisis was in its early stage and everyone (Central Banksters, politicians, media) were telling us that deflation was looming.

It was of course seen by plenty here and in the more clued-in world of financial boards and websites as a sign of things to come and inflation has indeed come to pass, despite the fact that the global economy has stagnated for half a decade and the biggest credit bubble in history has collapsed ...Good old money-printing!

It's absolutely true that QE has depressed UK bond rates, however there is nothing to stop you investing in other bonds.

Italy and Spain both look like excellent investments at c.4%, with the eurozone now much stablised .

:lol:

The ECB have stated they will be a lender of last resort, so it's unthinkable that a major euro economy would default. This makes Spain and Italy excellent investments at 4%.
