Interesting News, Guardian, 7-01-2006

Recommended Posts

in an ironic way it wasnt the slowdown that ruined things. it was the speedup before.

The problems have always been there......decline in manufacturing, loss of service sector employment to cheaper areas etc, it's just that the boom in the housing market has enabled homeowners to prop the economy up for a few years via debt and equity release.

Could be interesting as I work in the Automotive industry and I know how hard it has been over the past couple of years. News like this could make it that much tougher still!!
