Inflation now a real problem for UK

first_img KCS-content Inflation now a real problem for UK whatsapp Tags: NULL IN the long-term, we are all dead – or so claimed John Maynard Keynes. True, of course, but only in a meaningless kind of way, as yesterday’s dangerously high UK inflation figures demonstrate. For ages now, the Bank of England has been justifying its failure to meet its inflation target in the short-term by repeatedly pointing to the fact that its forecasts suggest all would be well in the medium-term. At first, most commentators were satisfied by this. No longer.The trouble is that a succession of short-terms must eventually become the medium term (and eventually the long-term, the point the congenitally short-termist Keynes failed to grasp). That time is surely now. Every month for the past 12 months, inflation has been above the government’s two per cent inflation target – and every time the message has been not to worry, the overshoot is just due to temporary factors and powerful disinflationary forces mean all will be well. Yet over the past 37 months, CPI inflation has been below target only six times (all between June and November 2009) and above 31 times. It’s a poor record, especially ahead of the Vat rise next month which will put further upwards pressure on prices. Inflation on the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) hit 3.3 per cent last month, up from 3.2 per cent in October, the highest level for six months. The retail price index was up 4.7 per cent year-on-year in November, from 4.5 per cent in October. Great news if you have a mortgage or credit card debt, as its real value drops and you are effectively allowed to default on part of your debt; terrible if you rely on a fixed income. To maintain the purchasing power of their savings, a basic rate tax payer needs to find a savings account paying 4.13 per cent per annum, while a higher rate tax payer at 40 per cent needs to find an account paying 5.5 per cent, Moneyfacts calculates. The figures need to be even higher if one wants to protect against RPI inflation or for those on the 50p tax rate. There are very few instant access bank accounts that provide such protection, which means that people are wasting their time holding on to cash. It is sometimes claimed that high inflation is the only way Britain’s massive debt burden, private as well as public, will be eroded in real terms. Others argue it is the only way to tackle the UK’s high labour costs – output per worker fell during the crisis, while wages rose slightly. But this assumes nobody reacts to higher prices – yet UK gilt yields are starting to rise again as investors protect themselves against the ever shrinking pound. Higher inflation will also push up mortgage rates and all interest rates charged to firms and individuals. The more people think inflation will rise, the more they put up their prices and wages in anticipation, and the more inflation actually rises, triggering a self-fulfilling loop. Once an inflationary spiral kicks off, only vicious hikes in interest rates can stop it. Higher inflation brings with it significant other costs. Real incomes are falling, which means that there is less money left to spend; inflation is a hidden tax. It is all good and well to try and boost the money supply, as the Bank has done, but the benefits of this are eliminated with excessively high levels of inflation. We need higher interest rates and absolutely no more QE – and a strong message of intent from the Bank. Time is running out for the authorities to show that they truly care about keeping inflation [email protected] Show Comments ▼ Share by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGem whatsapp Tuesday 14 December 2010 9:40 pmlast_img read more

Beyond the basic criteria that a commercial-multi residential project must meet, the architecture also has to make a unique statement by inducing a perceived image and emotional value to support the commercial side. The always conflicting aspect of the practicality and the emotional becomes the design driver for this project. The goal then is to soften the cold, solid boxy nature of the condominium building by introducing another layer of building façade that acts like clothing to the building. Fine ‘petal’ facade elements envelop & create a subtle layer of visual hierarchy like floral arrangement. The thin hard steel trellis becomes soft and delicate elements when looking from distance. The angled placement enhances the depth and create subtle shade & shadows.Save this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatSave this picture!Third to Sixth Floor PlanSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatThe interweaving of the façade element then ‘dissolve’ the rigidity of the repeating condominium façade while also act as filter to slightly increase privacy for the residence. The material selections imply discreet tonal variance to compliment the aesthetic. Subtle shades of grey for the inner ‘body’ of the building and the all-white for outer skin. The level of details varies from the user perceived distance. The refined materials like marble or textured paint for closer surface and the larger ordinary painted elements carefully arranged to create sense of textured for farther element. The resident shall enter the project via the slightly elevated reflecting pool which the main walkway cut through to the lobby while the isolated reading pavilion ‘floating’ in the reflecting pool.Save this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatThis reflecting pool becomes a nice buffer for the outside environment without the need for conventional fence. This 8 storied low-rise building yet can accommodate high ceiling with generous rooftop amenity and large swimming pool along with private pavilion to admire the urban skyline.

The Division Bench of Justices P. N. Prakash and B. Pugalendhi was hearing the suo moto case taken on the horrific custodial deaths of a father-son duo, Jayaraj and Bennix after being arrested by Sathankulam police.”Only through such wellbeing programmes can violent propensities in individuals be stymied”, it stated.The bench was informed that the programme had been conceived under a Government Order of June, 2018 and accordingly, the state and NIMHANS had entered into an agreement for a period of three years, under which 462 persons (254 policemen of the rank of Inspectors and Sub Inspectors and 208 trained counsellors) were selected and sent in batches of 40 to NIMHANS, Bengaluru, for undergoing a 5-day Programme. After undergoing the training, the 462 Master Trainers began counselling sessions at various centres throughout the State in the weekends for police officers from the rank of D.S.P. to Constable and to their families.The Court was told that the State Government has allocated a sum of Rs.10 crores for this programme. The bench was apprised by NIMHANS experts that, however, on account of COVID-19 pandemic, the activities under the programme stand impaired and they were of the unanimous opinion that post- COVID-19, there will be a spike in cases of mental illness throughout the society.”What troubles us is the grim picture painted by them about the mental health of people that obtains now and will obtain post-COVID -19 pandemic. They stated that a Programme that has well begun will bear fruition only if it is worked continuously for a period of five years and if the Programme is abandoned midway, whatever time, money and energy invested in it, will go down the drain”, lamented the bench. Conceding that they are “conscious of the fact that on account of the situation due to COVID-19, the State Government is cash-strapped”, the court expressed the view that “having walked this far, the State Government should not abandon the Programme midway, because, public security can be ensured only if the police force is physically, mentally and morally strong”The bench proceeded to reflect that “A few bad apples here and there, should not be a reason to condemn the entire force of around 1.25 lakhs police personnel in the State, who are already in the forefront, battling the COVID-19 pandemic”. “On the one hand, those responsible for the death of Bennicks and Jayaraj should not go scot-free and on the other hand, we cannot afford to lose any more Bennicks and Jayarajs to violence”, articulated the bench.The Court, on Thursday, was apprised of a few success stories under the programme, where the counsellors were able to help some policemen and their families to come out of stressful situations. “They had even succeeded in arresting suicidal tendencies amongst the policemen and had brought about rapprochement amongst policemen estranged from their families”, recorded the bench.”We are further informed that 80% of the Master Trainers, who had undergone the wellbeing programme in NIMHANS, Bengaluru, are women of the rank of Inspectors and Sub Inspectors and that they are enthusiastically conducting the weekend sessions throughout the State. Dr.Sekar, Registrar, NIMHANS, specifically told us that a panel of three experts not connected with NIMHANS, Bengaluru, was constituted to evaluate the success of the Programme and he produced the report given by them which showed that the Programme has worked well”, noted the bench.As regards the Jeyaraj-Bennicks custodial deaths, the bench was informed by the CB-CID DSP, appointed by the court as the Investigating Officer in the case, has since taken over the investigation and registered separate cases in respect of the two death under section 176(1)(1A) of the CrPC. He submitted that has examined 15 witnesses, based on which, he altered the cases to one under Sections 342,302 and 201 I.P.C.; 5 persons have been named as accused in the case and that he arrested Raghuganesan (a co-accused, Sub-Inspector attached to Sathankulam PS) and produced him before the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Tuticorin, for judicial custody. Thereafter, he has arrested some more persons and they are being interrogated. On being informed that the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Tuticorin, had nominated the Judicial Magistrate No.I, Kovilpatti, for CB-CID Cases in the district, the bench was of the opinion  a case of this gravity has to be dealt with by a judicial officer of the rank of a Subordinate Judge.Therefore, the Court required that the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Tuticorin, should exercise the powers of the Judicial Magistrate No.I, Kovilpatti, in this case.Reiterating that Under the Code of Criminal Procedure, the Chief Judicial Magistrate is the head of the Magistracy in the district and there is absolutely no bar for him to exercise the powers of a Judicial Magistrate functioning within his jurisdiction, and that under Section 410 Cr.P.C., the Chief Judicial Magistrate can withdraw any case from any Magistrate subordinate to him and may enquire into or try such case himself, the bench itself directed the transfer of the cases to the files of the CJM. During the course of proceedings, the bench also called Revathy, Head Constable attached to Sathankulam Police Station, who had spilled beans on the delinquent police officials. With the phone on speaker mode on, “so that everyone could hear her”, the Court enquired of her safety. “She stated that the District Collector, Tuticorin, has provided her and her family members, sufficient security and that she feels safe in her native village with her relatives around her. We informed her that if and when she feels a threat to her security, she may inform the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Tuticorin, or the Judicial Magistrate No.I, Kovilpatti, who, in turn, would bring the matter to the notice of this Court. The learned Additional Advocate General also confirmed that sufficient security has been provided for Revathy and her family”, recorded the benchClick Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more
