Business Conversation Questions are widely used in speaking activities as pair interview or group discussion.
Deflation Following the credit crunch, governments around the world were worried about deflation – a period of falling prices and falling demand, which would be very difficult to end. So they produced stimulus packages – actions designed to increase economy activity, for example by lowering taxes in order to give people more money to spend. They reduced interest rates to nearly zero, meaning that borrowing money was almost cost free. Th12y started printing money – putting more money into the economy than realty existed – in order to increase demand. But critics said that this last move could be dangerous because of the risk of galloping inflation – prices rising very fast – or even stagflation – inflation with no economic growth.
