About this session

Inflation is rising inexorably –it is currently
3.5%, and there are expectations that it will increase towards 5% in
Australia.  Inflation is already 7.5% in the US, a figure that doubles
relative cost within ten years.

increase requests? Should we invest time in chasing marginal cost saving
opportunities when all costs are rising in an inflationary economy? Most
contemporary buyers have only ever known a buyer’s market, let alone a market
in which costs and wages are spiralling upwards!
