How to Beat the Credit Crunch and Takle the UK Cost of Living Crisis Wednesday 13 August 2008 PDF Print Everyone in the UK is currently experiencing the biggest hike in fuel and food prices for decades, and all signs indicate that it's going to get much, much worse. And now, adding to the misery, are the water companies, who are also looking to jump on the 'bash the British consumer' bandwagon. Give us a break! As a global recession menacingly looms on the horizon, we in the UK can expect to see a sharp rise in inflation and a further slump in property values. But, on a brighter note, luxury goods like digital TVs are actually falling in price... due to a decrease in demand. However, the real worries are the forever upward spiralling costs of food, domestic gas, electricity and petrol. All of which have dramatically increased in price over the last 12 months. Despite obscene profits, the companies who supply the general public with power and petrol continue to lay blame on so-say production and sourcing costs, citing these as the real causes for the dilemma. It's no surprise that many people feel that these are nothing more than excuses in a feeble effort to obscure their sheer greed. Now, all this price hiking and public fleecing is bad enough but when you take into account the derisory pay rises, which many public sector workers have been offered recently, you have before you an unhealthy recipe for civil unrest. And, although many people will speak out openly about these blatant injustices, many more will just grin and bear it. It's the British way. Well it may all sound like doom and gloom, and for many it really is. But it doesn't have to be that way. All anyone needs to overcome all this misery is an additional income. And there's never been a better time to look at all the opportunities available, especially those on the Internet. Anyone with a computer, an Internet connection and a few hours to spare can earn an additional income from doing simple data entry work or participating in online surveys. There are also many more profitable sidelines like auctions, affiliate programs and setting up an online business. All these income boosters can be operated from home, so there is no financial outlay other than a small initial investment in the information needed to get started. They can be operated on a part-time basis or full-time basis depending on the individual and the time they have to spare. We all know there's no such thing as a "quick fix" or "get-rich-quick" system. However, these little income opportunities offer a way to help keep on top of those regular bills and see off some of those debts. And for those reasons alone, at a time like this, it's worth taking a closer look at what's on offer. Finally, we might be able to do something about making extra money, but unfortunately we can do absolutely nothing about the Great British weather!
