Economy: Talk Of Rate Rise Replaced By Cut

news.sky.com — Households should prepare themselves for a possible UK interest rate cut this year, with investors betting that there is now a greater chance that the next move in borrowing costs is down than up.

Let’s be positive about negative interest rates

thetimes.co.uk — It may fly in the face of conventional economic wisdom but going sub-zero can make sense Of all the unconventional thinkers in finance, few were as radical as John Maynard Keynes - and not just when it came to economics.

Why nationalism is on the march again

China is trapped in the ultimate trilemma

thetimes.co.uk — Lesson 1 for Beijing: no nation can control interest rates, currency value and have free flow of capital Here in Britain, pantomime season is drawing to a close but 5,000 miles away in Beijing another farcical annual ritual is only just beginning. For today the Chinese authorities deliver their official estimate of economic growth in 2015.

Deep-freeze Britain faces its own Lost Decade

thetimes.co.uk — Japan is the world's cautionary economic tale. In many ways, we're in even bigger trouble If, not all that long ago, you asked an economist to run through their greatest fears for the UK economy, "turning Japanese" would probably have been somewhere near the top of the list.

Happy 1936, sorry 2016

medium.com — Here's something that isn't often mentioned these days. The world economy is currently doing worse, seven and a half years after the crash, than it was at the same stage of the Great Depression. If at first that sounds improbable, consider the graph below, from a paper by Kevin O'Rourke.

Carney: “The package we release four times a year provides guidance”. Hang on, so forward guidance is now the Inflation Report?

Feb 04, 2016

Once again, Governor’s message in Inflation Report press conference is v different to report itself. Report: dovish. Governor: hawkish

Feb 04, 2016

V hawkish Carney: “there’s not quite enough tightening in [the IR] market path” And NB the path in the IR is less dovish market now
