Tomorrow morning @ 07:00, the Office for National Statistics is publishing the latest official inflation data. It's currently more than twice the 2% target and is predicted to rise above 5% in the months ahead. All in all, a proper sh!tshow. We want to know:
- How is inflation affecting you and/or your business in the real world? After all, times are tough enough for many people as it is, and now everything is costing more - in the shops and for raw materials.
- Are you having to increase your prices to reduce the impact of the rising cost of living, or would that risk sales? It's a delicate balancing act.
- Has Brexit (remember that?) compounded the inflation problem?
- Should the Bank of England raise rates on Thursday to contain inflation or sit tight given the uncertainty created by the Omicron variant?
