The Manchester economy: The pasty index

As economic indicators go, I always think food.
(Then again, I suppose having this blog means that I think food for most topics!)
And when you look at eating habits in Manchester you can’t avoid looking at those city favourites – pies and pasties.
So I’ve had a look at that favourite haunt of construction workers’ and city slickers alike – Greggs – to see if there’s proof of an economuic downturn to be found there.
Interesting results!


Thanks to Andrew Webb for this great picture (again!).
