  • “The uncomfortable truth is that our era of growth and low inflation, courtesy of Beijing rather than Gordon Brown’s reign at the Treasury, is over”.

    How long before “the uncomfortable truth” hits the mainstream press? By Easter, the impact of higher food and oil prices plus the job cuts will be more noticeable.

  • I pointed out that the era of ever cheaper products from China was over more than a year ago – and that there were major inflationary pressures on the horizon.

    It wasn’t rocket science or lucky guesswork to make that observation, yet the reality is taking the good and the great by surprise!
