Inflation & Employment

Employment and Inflation is the topic of discussion today. Shaun starts by noting two things about the inflation number

  • It’s turning, and we are moving to a position where by the impact of the lower pound is running off. The big thing that is pushing it up is fading.
  • If you go through the numbers, some were up and some were down. This poses a real problem, as you can get any answer you want by choosing what number you want.
