Charts are a powerful tool to help us make decisions in professional and personal lives.
Last week I was exploring some macroeconomic data after going through the invoices sent to clients in the past six months. These days in Czechia the inflation rate is above 15% and Koruna is strong against both, Euro and US dollar. I am starting to feel it and don't like it.
From the charts published in a post on Saturday there's little to give anyone confidence that bankers at Czech National Bank know what they are doing. In the short-term it may mean very little.
In the long-term it means that a decision will be made in next couple of months. There are about four options to choose from, some of them include moving abroad, some of them require career changes. For all of them I need to gather more information.
