The inflation conundrum

In many previous posts, I have argued the current sharp rise in inflation rates in all the major economies does not derive from so-called ‘excessive demand’; or from excessive money supply growth; or wage demands forcing companies to raise prices. It primarily relies on the failure of supply to match demand.  Supply was drastically squeezed during…

Sunak IN as Tory PM: all OUT for the fight against the ruling class

The imposition of Rishi Sunak on Britain as prime minister by a handful of Tory MPs was an anti-democratic charade.

The political system of Britain’s ruling class continues to degenerate…

The resignation of Liz Truss after 44 days as Prime Minister is just the latest in an unprecedented and chaotic sequence of events in British politics since the Brexit referendum of 2016, and there is no sign that things are going to miraculously settle down into some sort of constitutional normality.

All Trussed Up: Liz Truss’ Short Tenure Was No Mistake

By: Hari Kumar, Red Phoenix Correspondent How stupid do the British ruling class think we are?
