The Quickening......perception

Recommended Posts

Starting to feel the quickening?

i.e. the economic storm clouds gathering pace and the slighthly fearful paddling below water surface whilst trying to appear like everything is fine on top.

Energy problems are starting to compact - deja vu?

Debt, affordability problems - general hubbub remains.

Retail on tenterhooks for Xmas.

Reports & anecdotes of redundancy coming onto the business agenda.

Currency concerns.

Intensification of similar problems in Anglo countries around the world.

Constant BoE commentary on the hard topics.

I am getting the feeling its all starting to quicken in pace.....

mixing metaphors I know :rolleyes:

Yep. Nice post . . . . . . . and I echo what I feel will become the most taught retail slogan to all the "property developers" retraining during 2006 and 2007.

I see the clouds, but I don't feel their effects (at least not personally and not yet):

Sales at work are moving up and forecast higher (manufacturing) - job security is very good at the mo.

Shops in town heaving

FTSE nuding higher daily, my shares are doing v well indeed

HP's seemingly higher m.o.m.

Few 'for sale' signs and lots of 'to let; signs knocking about

None of my friends/relatives (apart from one) have hinted that finances are tight with them

The clouds I see (in addition to your points, pdg) are :

Tightening credit (0% deals getting shorter)

Credit interest rates edging higher

More firms (mine included) looking to resource goods/services from low cost countries (china, india, malaysia, e europe)

Falling car sales

Work talking about strategies to deal with the 'trough'

Bad results from a number of retail outfits

In balance, my feelings for the future are 'bad to terrible', but I've been saying this for 4 years as my mum pointed out the other day.

"In the end, there can be only one...."

Sorry, always wanted to say that.

Well, we've already had "The Gathering" (HPC pub meet).

Looks like a few of the high street "Immortals" will be battling it out to the death this Christmas.

It'll all be fine as long as the finance department don't lose their heads. :lol:

Got to be more entertaining than Highlander II.
