Today's econo-balls:

"Growth is slowing at a faster rate than before." - ITV news, reporting a statement from the CBI

Most people are concerned with growth and shrinking. The news usually makes it into the second derivative, the rate of growth, and panic hugely when the rate of growth is down, or when profits haven't increased as much as they did last year. It's still a PROFIT. But this is ... unspeakable. It's the first time I've heard the news (or the CBI) attempt to create a panic over a third derivative.
