Inflation hurts the pocket of the British

“Something happened, something we have long feared: the real income is decreasing. We definitely do not share the optimism of the Bank of England. We just don't see the growth of wages. And if the consumer price index will be even slightly higher than predicted, it becomes apparent that the decline in real income has a negative impact on the purchasing activity of the British” – says a currency analyst Nick Parsons.
