I was interested to read Economics Editor David Smith's piece in the Sunday Times on price rises and consumer spending expectations since he took as his starting point his research into buying a garden office. "The other day I was looking for a shed for the garden. I say shed but what I had in mind was a palatial wooden building complete with double glazing and power supply for moments of contemplation," he writes. "Anyway, the point is that the salesman told me that I should get my order in quickly because the prices were about to go up by 10%. Being a canny kind of guy, especially when it comes to sheds, I checked. Sure enough, he was not spinning me a line." You can see the rest of the piece here.
