Err!!..but, but, interest rates are going to stay low

FTAdvisor.com: Schroders issues inflation warning

No matter how many different lines of spin nulabs pollitt bureau can come up with, the truth is you cannot keep producing money out of thin air and expect everything to work itself out in such a fashion that "the greatest financial disaster in the history of the planet" appears to be nothing more than a blip during 2008-2009. Inflation will come, markets will fall, ordinary people will lose out, the tories will only last 1 term, then labour will start it all again...the human race really is dumb!!

If the past is anything to go by they will just fiddle the figures and ignore it!

They could however tell the energy companies to stop ripping us off.

The headline summary is not exactly the message in the article, is it now?

Roger Bootle on Sky (tonight 7.45) said interest rates and inflation will both stay very low.

Wherever you look people are just "coming out" with comments which greatly contradict one another. For example, as a gold bull, I think the price could easily go to $1200 in a year, but I can find warnings of gold dropping from $1050 down to $900 and bouncing up to $2000.

Verdict...its very volatile out there! ("Anything can happen in the next half-hour" as they said on Stingray).

Alan, surely it is obvious by now that politicians, economists and analysts simply haven’t got a clue about what is what and what is not. Throw enough guesses out there and one will eventually be right.

2010 will be the year when everyone will put the prices up with the exeption that house sellers will have to think twice before putting price up. 2007-2010 translates in 2-3 years lost already so will we have 7 more years like Japan to get nowhere?

I have just finished a competitor analysis as I am going through our pricing strategy for next year and my observations are that most people held prices last year but are starting to put them up again. I am probably going to follow, putting my prices up 10% for January after a freeze last year.

This is anecdotal but it seams widespread
