Ruth Gregory - Capital Economics


Last quote by Ruth Gregory

Our seasonally adjusted measure of car registrations suggests that car purchases – which were responsible for a large part of the weakness in the second quarter – rebounded in the third. And the surveys suggest that spending off the high street has remained robust. As a result, total household spending growth still probably registered a small pick-up in the third

May 18 2017 - Easter

Today's figures do at least support our view that with credit conditions remaining supportive, employment growth still strong and consumers' confidence robust, household spending growth is likely to slow only gradually this year rather than collapse completely.

But we don't think that that will panic the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) into raising rates imminently. After all, the MPC tolerated an inflation overshoot of 3 percentage points in

Apr 11 2017 - Brexit
