  • UK Economy Finishes 2015 Strongly, CBI says

    25 Jan 2016

    As we move in to 2016, it’d be fair to say that for many businesses, 2015 was a year worth forgetting. We saw the Chinese stock markets go into a state of almost constant uncertainty, UK manufacturing falter and the services industry show some early signs of worry, and that’s without mentioning the state of the Eurozone economy to boot. However, is the figures from the Confederation of British Industry are to be believed, 2015 ended rather strongly for the nation.

    The CBI, a leading employers group, said that growth in Britain’s private sector picked up speed in the three months ending in December. Indeed, the group further suggested that the momentum seen in the final quarter of the year would continue into early 2016, hinting that the slowing of the economy might ease up as we move into the middle of this New Year.

    The confederation said today (04/01) that its monthly growth indicator (based on surveys of manufacturers, retailers and services) rose to a three month high of +20, up from +13 in November and above the long run average of +5. Carolyn Fairbairn, the CBI’s director-general, said: "The UK economy has finished the year strongly, with business services acting as a lightning rod for growth, nonetheless, there is no room for complacency in 2016 as significant challenges to global growth remain."

    Meanwhile, a survey of CFO’s of large British companies, conducted by accountants Deloitte, showed that business confidence had fallen back to levels last seen during 2012. The slowdown in the global economy, uncertainty in global shares and the strength of the Sterling meant that British exports were hampered, leaving the recovery in the hands of consumers. Thankfully, consumer spending was helped by a combination of low inflation, falling oil prices, extremely low interest rates and rising wages. The final quarter was no doubt helped by Christmas period, which typically sees consumer spending rocket in the build up to the big day.

    It’s not all good news for the economy though, as UK manufacturing suffered a disappointing December, in spite of that increased consumer spending. The UK’s manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI), compiled by Markit, showed that manufacturing fell to 51.9 from the 52.5 seen in November, falling short of their anticipated reading of 52.8.

    That’s still above the break-even point of 50, but indicates slowing growth in the sector, potentially moving towards a state of contraction through 2016. Rob Dawson at Markit said “The UK manufacturing sector ended 2015 on a disappointing note, with its rate of growth slowing further from October’s recent high back down towards the stagnation mark. This suggests that industry will make, at best, only a marginal positive contribution to broader economic growth in the final quarter of the year.”

    There’s also some concern over Britain’s planned referendum on its membership of the European Union, with some economists warning that the flex state of the result could hurt growth in 2016. With the referendum due within the next two years, the government will have to move quickly to convince businesses both home and abroad that the UK will remain in the European Union.

  • Osborne Warns of ‘Cocktail’ of Threats to Economy

    21 Jan 2016

    2016 hasn’t started with the kind of news that would get George Osborne leaping out of bed in the morning. China has opened the year with a series of torrid days in the stock market, closing 10% down from the end of 2015. That, in turn, hit the world markets, which in turn did nothing to assuage the ongoing fears in the European markets. All in all, it’s been an inauspicious start to the year, and now Mr. Osborne is warning that 2016 is likely to be one of the toughest since the financial crisis first took hold, telling business leaders that we’re still a long way from “mission accomplished” in regards to economy, but rather, this year is “mission critical”.

    The message comes in contrast to his autumn statement and speech at the party conference, both of which were presented as positive in tone, with the former describing the economy as “growing fast”. At the time of that autumn statement, Mr. Osborne said that it was a four year plan to restore the UK’s public finances, make businesses more competitive and the economy more productive in order to create jobs and wealth.

    In an interview with the Today programme on Radio 4, Mr. Osborne said: “It is precisely because we live in an uncertain world. It is precisely because we have not abolished boom and bust as a nation, that you need to take these steps, difficult steps, and I need to go explaining to the public, that the difficult times aren't over, we have got to go on making the difficult decisions, precisely so that Britain can continue to enjoy the low unemployment and the rising wages that we see at the moment”

    Now, he’s spoken of a “dangerous cocktail of new threats”, including the pace of China’s falling currency (currently at its lowest level in nearly five years), asset bubbles in the UK economy and falling commodity prices all threaten the future stability of the United Kingdom. Part of this fresh recovery warning is to stop a so called “creeping complacency” which the chancellor suggests has made its way back into the public’s psyche since the end of the recession.

    "All the old habits, all the old habits, all the old bad ways that got Britain into that mess are re-emerging in some of our national debate and I need to remind people that it's a very challenging world out there, that Britain still has big economic problems that it has to fix," Mr. Osborne said.

    The shadow chancellor John McDonnell used Osborne’s comments to attack, saying that it was the government’s “failed economic policies” that created the threats to the economy. "It's a cocktail of his own mixture - failing to invest, failing to rebalance the economy, relying upon consumer debt to boost the economy for an election victory and now we're facing our own lethal cocktail within our own economy.

    He's getting his excuses in early for the problems that he's caused that will now unfortunately hit upon many families across the country, especially if interest rates are increased during the year."
