GNP growth expected over the next 4 years :)

If the consumer could only ignore

The increased taxes
The increased job losses
The non availability of credit from the Banks
The increase in cost of private health insurance
The possible increase in the 21% vat rate
The new property tax
The new water rates
The new solidarity tax
The new stealth taxes
The increase in price of electricity
The expected increases in excise duties
The expected increase in motor tax
The higher cost of home & motor insurance
The fact that standard rate variable mortgage rate will increase by at least 1% in 2011


WE SHOULD ALL SPEND SPEND SPEND SPEND

By the way, when the Fianna FAIL muppets talk about export growth has anyone filled them in on the effect of the euro`s appreciation in value recently against sterling & the dollar :)

Makes our exports more EXPENSIVE.

Eh, where are we getting this money from?

If people had money, they'd spend it.

The DoF in conjunction with Lenny will announce their new 4 year sustainable economic plan that will generate sustainable jobs, increase consumer spending, kick start the construction industry in our quest in going forward. The plan is along these lines.



We will turn the corner.

Are they fecking deluded? As well as all the factors mentioned above there is also the fact that a lot of people are using any extra cash to pay off whatever debts they can and are also saving what they can for fear of what the future may hold. Even in the charity shop sector there are signs that people are pulling back on their spending.
