Low International demand for £

Recommended Posts

US has increased it's rates, debts have peaked, inflation has picked up(officially) so why are IRs not rising? Is it because of low international demand for GBP? Is low demand a significant factor?

You know the answer. Housing. The UK economy is built on it. Inflation was at 5% and GBP tanked after the 2008 crisis, the BoE kept rates low. It'll require an economic boom, a full on currency crisis or inflation at > 5% for sustained period of time to get rates to rise.

If the £ demand was low they'd increase interest rates, not keep them low.  The current situaton looks more like high demand.
