    McDonald’s is hiking the price of its cheeseburger for the first time in 14 years as the fast-food giant passes the effect of soaring costs onto customers.

    The company told UK customers on Wednesday morning that it is lifting the price of a cheeseburger from 99p to £1.19, in the latest sign of mounting pressure on consumers.

    The US has plunged into recession as soaring inflation hammers the world’s largest economy.

    GDP fell 0.9pc in the second quarter, according to the Commerce Department. That came after a 1.6pc decline in the first three months of the year.

    The two consecutive quarters of contraction mean the US is now in a technical recession.

    Personal consumption, the largest part of the economy, rose 1pc. However, this was a slowdown from the previous period.

    It comes as President Joe Biden grapples with surging inflation, which last month hit 9.1pc – a 40-year high.

    The Federal Reserve last night confirmed its second 75 basis-point interest rate rise in an effort to keep a lid on soaring prices. However, the move will fuel concerns about a slowdown in the economy.

    No, but as several posters have pointed out to you that it is good etiquette to make clear what is your own content and that which has been written by others and subsequently copied and pasted by you. It's also a flag regarding th copyright of the content concerned.

    What’s the point of this thread? Nobody is denying that other countries and areas are experiencing the same sort of problems as we are, but I started a thread about this

    https://www.ft.com/content/ee2ce542-...d-57a8200a47ae

    and asked why we were predicted to do worse than everyone bar sanctions hit Russia? Nobody was able to answer that question, but Brexit surely has to be on any list of possible reasons doesn’t it?

    How is is “good etiquette” , I didn’t read that in the Terms & Conditions when I last looked in ?

    If it’s copyright flag, then surely the moderators should remove it then ?

    It’s an unofficial messageboard not the Financial Times

    There's another Cardiff City messageboard that regularly comes on here, lifts people's posts and then puts them on their board under someone else's name, you're happy with that are you?

    Firstly, such is the etiquette regarding such things that I am not aware of any other poster on this message board not attributing content that has been copied from another source in such a way and continually. Not only is it respectful to the author concerned it makes it clear as to whether the content is the messageboard posters very own words or not - and which has a bearing as to how others may respond to the post. As TOBW states, the worst scenario is 'passing off' content as one's own.
