    Core Inflation – whats that then? a list of things they think will never go up in price much?
    You can’t just pick and choose your inflation.
    The bottom line is if you don’t have an interest rate and hence a wage inflation rate that meets inflation requirements people will just have less money to spend and the economy will dive anyway.
    But I guess thats after the next election – so I guess it doesn’t matter ….

    Desperate times – desperate acts.
