Deputy Governor of the BoE describes the economy as menopausal

Discussion in 'SMB' started by Flared Hicks, May 16, 2018.

  1. while trying to explain the term "climacteric" referring to economies which are "past their peak, and no longer so potent".

    Then was told it was probably not the best phrase to use and has since apologised.

    Bank chief sorry for 'menopausal' gaffe

    The thought of a climacteric woman definitely sounds more appealing

    Wow - that's early :eek: Has it bothered you much?

    I feel a bit warm now and again but not had full on hot flushes and no other side effects. I usually feel the cold, so feeling warm is a novelty :lol:
  12. Chemically controlled climacteric cougar?

    My Mother was thrilled as she'd had the same. I spent some awful years with hot flushes and night sweats, and people generally letting me know when I'd gone bright red. But it certainly didn't hinder my interest in sex at all! ;):lol::lol:
