GARRULOUS ex-Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan has been sounding off again, this time about the UK inflation rate. Al reckons inflation will rise to over 3% on a regular basis, putting the squeeze on interest rates, and says the property boom will come to an end.

DRINK and illegal drugs are reckoned by 40% of employers to be the major cause of absenteeism and poor productivity, according to reasearch by the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD). The Government reckons that around £2bn (14 million working days) are lost to alcohol abuse every year.
