    Abstract

    Output growth continues to slow and, following the significant increase in the exchange rate, there are fears of a small recession or at best stagnant growth in the latter half of this year. In addition, the rate of growth of prices appears to be increasing, fuelled by buoyant earnings growth and the recent increases in the price of oil.
