In danger of losing credibility

For what it’s worth, I would still like to see higher wage growth and stronger resilient economic growth before a rise in rates. Brexit remains a concern.

I read a good analogy in The Times that suggested that QE was a little like toothpaste in a tube – easy to squeeze out, awkward to put back, assuming that it will go. My thoughts exactly.

Perhaps Mr Saunders needs to refer to more recent economic data and commentary before he suggests that we are headed back to strong economic growth.

Monetary policy is muddled

Monetary policy remains confused. Too many contradictory messages out there, too little clear thinking. This needs to be addressed.

Britons are buying and selling houses less frequently than they once did.

Whichever one you choose, you’re going to get very dizzy.

The general election was a distraction – and look how helpful that turned out to be for our economic prospects.

Most economists concur that ending Britain’s huge under-investment would be one of the best moves.

A transitional arrangement is imperative.
