Ikea raises prices after rise in import costs from Brexit

London bus fares increasing every year?!!?!? Same reason as virtually all prices for anything at all rise. Increased costs.
Cameron says low oil price is "basically good for economy". Do you believe that? Yes. Been a lot of years but I remember when Germany only had 1 small oil field. They import oil. So good for them keeps prices down on exports & at home. It is very bad for Canada, Russia, the Saudis are even spending more than they bring in right now. Bad for them. Were I live it is a mixed bag. They have wells and produce some oil. But no new drilling is going on as it is cheaper to import oil than drill for it here. So very bad for those who worked in oil but is helping exports keeping prices low in another area.
What two factors affect variation in egg prices? 1) it can depend if the eggs were laid by chickens in cages where the costs are less per egg, or if they were free range chickens where collecting the eggs and feeding the chickens is harder and more expensive. 2) in drought years feed costs can be way higher increasing farmer's costs raising selling prices. 3) supermarkets can squeeze the farm prices of eggs lowering the price.
Why are rent prices so high in general? Costs increase annually, so rental prices increase annually. Are the increases exceeding the costs, probably, but that's why there is an open market. It permits property owners/managers to maximize the return on their investment (the apartment, building, complex, etc). Its their job to make money...these are investments. So, they charge the most rent they can in order to maintain maximum profitability... Here is the issue, cities are becoming more desirable than the suburbs, so those inner city areas are seeing a resurgence which prices out the existing residents. Its known as gentrification and happens all of the time, everywhere on the planet. When an area becomes popular, demand increases, causing prices to increase. That's what we are seeing in the housing market, more so than increases associated with costs. Like it or not, that's what's happening.
Experts predict property costs could plunge by FORTY PER CENT.. Great news for savers ? unlike the rest of the world where property prices crashed circa 2009 due to greedy capitalists, UK prices remained inflated thanks to conservative gerymandering conservatives gerrymandering achieved capitalist holy grail "money for nothing" to CON the sheeple they fed them scraps from the table no one has mentioned the huge problem of UK personal debt, when inflation and interest rates rise after brexit, the country is in for one almighty recession with no sector large enough or capable to bring about a recovery thanks to thatcher and subsequent tory governments UK is heavily reliant on the service sector right wing have soft hands and afraid of hard work
If President Donald Trump's economy is "the best ever," why is GE laying off 12,000 workers? Moving to Mexico. Low wages there. Under $10 a day. Mexico has better import export ties with Asia than America does. So can export more to Asia with out tariff on it than America can. Compete better against Japan & Korea in the Asia market. Same with some vehicles. Made in Mexico but sold in Asia. Do to low import tax's to there they have. Were if sold from America prices would double. On import tax.
