Hot Air Ballons as a key indicator of economic downturn

Recommended Posts

In conversation this morning it was mentioned that there have been a lot less Hot Air Balloons over the Surrey Hills this year.  Hot Air Ballooning must be high on the 'discretionary spend' list and is probably an easy thing to cut out.  Could a slowdown in the number of these balloons going up be a sign that the economy is going down faster than the media is letting on?

Could be my imagination (or thinking other than with my head) but I think the Hot Waitress Index has moved toward recession recently.

I used to routinely see them in the summer months and it would be fun to see them land in the local rec but I have seen one in years...

Office towers being built is the usual indicator ...and they are popping up like mad in central London making the place look a confused shambles.  Just as the building boom reaches a frenzy (ie about now) is when you can expect it to collapse.
