Guess What's Driving The Uk Recovery....

Recommended Posts

British exporters are taking a knock from the sluggishness of the euro area, leaving consumers fueling much of the fire behind the expansion.

Households ramped up spending in stores at the fastest pace in more than a decade in the fourth quarter, and data Tuesday will show how much that checked the impact of weak external demand. Economists forecast growth of 0.6 percent in the three months, down from 0.7 percent in the third quarter.

While the buildup to the general election in less than four months may weigh on confidence, further stimulus may reverse the cooling trend. The European Central Bank will pump $1.3 trillion into the economy of Britain’s biggest trading partner, while a slump in oil prices and strengthening wage growth are handing Britons the spending power they’ve been missing for years.

“Growth is pulling back but the recovery hasn’t stumbled,” said Victoria Clarke, an economist at Investec Securities in London. “We’re expecting an improvement in Europe and oil might mean a big boost to consumer spending, with more to come from what we’ve already seen.”

This is George rebalancing the economy. Sustainable and rebalanced.....

Many British exporters only export to the EU and don't go any further. Apparently Ireland exports more to China than the UK does. UK companies have to start opening up the emerging markets. The Germans have been doing so for quite a while. As one example - 1/3rd of all Audis made are now sold in China.

Any pyramid scheme just needs new entrants at the bottom. Help to Buy Bail Banks achieves that. The governbankment has realised a few cheap props are value for their our money. They think throwing a few pounds at the housing market is a good bet because equity release spending comes out at the other end. Make the proles have to work more hours for a shelter and the extra taxes they pay makes it self funding.

We export weapons all over the place, hence why Dave and Chrlie were in Saudi to keep this client happy.

Have to love the way they fly out there to show respects to a totalitarian regime that makes ISIL look acceptable yet they keep their distance from the new democratically elected Greek Prime Minister.

There was no recovery so there is nothing to run out of steam.

Free money has been spend on over priced houses....more free money needed.

Free money ran out of steam, I think they are saying.
