Thread: A preview of what’s to come in the cost of living crisis?

    I'd expect a series of interest rate hikes as a response to inflation. Once the Fed starts hiking rates in March the rest of the World will likely follow.

    Commodity prices are mostly determined globally by the balance of demand and supply. Why would a Scottish oat producer accept less than the global market price for her oats?

    I will, it’s got very good reviews and is nearly half the price of those Tesco oats - thanks John.

    The world is having supply issues, My Brother-in-law ( who was is in Orlando for christmas ) mentioned the massive gaps on the shelves in Walmart and Target, I wanted a few bags of different M&M's, he facetimed me to show me the shelves on a few isles, it was mental, absolutely loads of spaces, then he showed me the prices, of course they have risen since I last went ( 4 years ago ) but the rises were certainly more than here

    cool story eh

    Why doesn't nothing happen when it is found.out to be a con e.g. Petrol. A couple of weeks ago prices should have or could have come down by about 12p but went up by 2p - nothing happened except the companies say they bought it when the prices were higher yet when prices go up they go up as an immediate response

    Does anybody seriously think that prices will ever return if there is a glut of a product

    Does anybody think anyone in Westminster gives a hoot - we must never find ourselves with anyone in power with that much of a majority

    Just my musings.....
    We need to move away from our dependency on gas and oil. The countries and companies that produce it must be coining it in and it has an impact on everything we buy.

    A global market price doesn't guarantee the producer that price. At the moment, taking Brexit as an example, accepting less from British traders might be acceptable in the face of the paperwork mountain they face to export it.

    Note my use of "mostly". Clearly the net price is the important determinant and that includes freight, administration, insurance, tariffs etc. A case in point is natural gas in the US. It's difficult and costly to export so it's cheap in the US. Oats from Scotland, I'd venture, not so difficult/costly to sell in the global marketplace 'though I freely admit Brexit hasn't helped with net prices for goods from Scotland.

    So there's a big element of sell local, unless you're in a situation where another market would give you huge money for your product that you have no chance of getting on your own doorstep.

Being organic, it’s always been that bit more expensive, but at £1.30 when I first came across it, it hardly broke the bank. Down the years, it went up 10p a time every now and then and was £1.60 when I bought a couple of bags just before Christmas, so I did a double take yesterday when I went to buy some more and found it had gone up to £2! Are the Russians stockpiling oats as well as gas I ask myself, how else can a swingeing 25 per cent rise be justified, or is it a sign of things to come? I’m used to seeing the total cost of my weekly shop at Aldi going up, but that’s a slow, gradual climb - I’m not aware of anything else rising at 25 per cent a time, so I wonder if it’s just a one off or can we start to expect the same on other products?

    You do know that there has been a global pandemic on in the last two years don't you ? You cant blame everything on brexit, no matter how much you didn't like the result of the vote.

    People predict bad thing will happen, others deny and call it project fear, bad thing happens, people still deny it.

    Incredible.

    I know at least in some states the licences rules are that you have to be a state sanctioned store or something like that

    For example, when I briefly lived in Pennsylvania in 2002 you could never buy booze in supermarkets.

    America is strange for a country so fond of free markets that it has quirks like this

    Okay, I predict every team in the championship will lose this weekend.

    Therefore when some of them do lose, I can claim I was right on those.

    Yes because if he can get s higher price for the chicken overseas because of a shortage he won't sell it to you. Same with oats. The farmer will sell to the highest payer. If he happens to be in another country tough luck quaker UK

    I took Lisvane Blue’s advice and bought 25kg of Wilton’s organic porridge, so I won’t be buying any supermarket porridge for months! Really surprised to see which one was rated the best in that survey and I could try Lidls if I’m not too impressed with the Wilton’s stuff. I was a little shocked to see Tesco’s rated so low because their organic brand is very nice and it was only the huge price rise that got me thinking of a change.

    25kg is a lot of porridge if you aren't sure if you'll like it yet.

    Or are you stockpiling it in case the price goes up again.
