Greed Inflation – Does this explain the stubborness of UK Inflation?
Greed Inflation is a term used to describe a higher inflation rate due to firms increasing their profit margins. In a period of high inflation, it becomes easier for firms to slip in rising profit margins too. Greed inflation is more likely in markets where firms have a degree of monopoly power and they can successfully increase prices.
UK inflation has been surprisingly stubborn. Whilst inflation in Europe has fallen to 6%, UK inflation remains stuck in double digits. Whilst real wages for workers fall, some companies are reporting record profits with concerns firms are taking advantage of inflation to increase their profit margins and markups. Some argue that up to 50% of the current inflation is coming from rising profit margins, and not just the rising costs. The high inflation is bad news for the economy because it means a continued squeeze in living standards and higher interest rates. So why is inflation high and when will it fall?

Either you repeat the same conventional doctrines everybody is saying, or else you say something true, and it will sound like it's from Neptune.
