Consumer anxieties

IRISH consumer confidence is crippled by uncertainty as the consumer market monitor fell to -25 in December.

The figure was a significant drop from -12 in August 2010. The Irish index has dropped to below the UK by 30pc and the EU by 24pc within the same period.

The figure can be attributed to consumer anxieties such as the December Budget, IMF bailout and Government uncertainties.
