economists forecasts seems to be getting gloomier with disturbing frequency. I will be here on Monday, May 23rd to answer your questions about what all this means.

But the cost of living crisis in Britain has much deeper roots and escalated long before Vladimir Putin ordered his troops to attack.

Although we are all aware of how we are affected by rising prices, many questions probably remain.

What is really causing this situation, how has it been resolved and what can be done to alleviate it in the short term as well as protect us in the future?

I will be here to answer your questions live at 1pm on Monday, May 23rd. To participate, register and then write your questions in the comments and I will answer as much as I can.
