China inflation hits 11-year high

  • @waitingfor hpc – what do you mean by “it is like the tap has been turned off in are whole sector” – what Mfrg sector are you in? and do you mean the orders have dried up?

  • Economic issues debated on here as well as the general HPC suggest a UK recession is inevitable – good to get this type of info from the coal face (not so good from the point of view that jobs potentially come under threat)

    It will be interesting to hear if it is just a blip or a more pronounced downturn

  • Yes, good to get this ‘recession’/job info so quickly, from the coalface. What’s even more worrying is that the policy of lowering UK interest rates and driving the pound down only has one plus point – to increase exports. From what w4hpc says, even that isn’t happening.

    Any exporters care to comment on how business is really going?

    Didn’t David Smith say that inflation imported from the Chinese Republic was not a problem?

    Remind me David?

    Is this why Rupert has told you to pull your blog?
