The former Bank of England Governor, Mervyn King, has told Sky News that the plunge in the pound is a "welcome change" for the UK economy. Lord King said that recent fears over the behaviour of the pound, which has fallen to its lowest level against the dollar since 1985, were overblown.
Philip Hammond has recruited Karen Ward, chief European economist at HSBC, as his key economic adviser, Sky News has learned. Ms Ward, a former Bank of England economist, has been appointed as Special Economic Adviser to the Chancellor - adding economic ballast to Mr Hammond's team, most of whom came over from the Foreign Office.
The City of London must be stripped of one of its most lucrative businesses when Britain leaves the European Union, the French finance minister has told Sky News. In comments which will be seen as a further escalation of Brexit tension between Britain and its European partners, Michel Sapin said that London's clearing operations, which involve the processing of euro transactions from around the world, could no longer remain in the UK.
It is the kind of headline that sends a shiver through economists' spines: "Global trade growth hits new low". After all, over the past few decades, economic growth has been closely correlated with trade flows.
Even if you weren't following the referendum campaign closely you'll probably remember a few of the economic highlights (lowlights?): the Vote Leave £350m bus; the "punishment Budget" and George Osborne predicting that there would be a recession if Britain left the EU. Now we know that all three of these claims were, in their own way, wrong.
Evidence that investors are shifting billions of pounds out of British assets is just a "taste of things to come" if we vote to leave the EU, the Chancellor has warned. His comments come after Sky News discovered some £65bn either left the UK or was converted into other currencies in March and April - the fastest rate since the financial crisis in early 2009.
Households may have started to hoard their cash, with new figures showing that the amount of money being kept outside Britain's banking system is now rising at the fastest rate since the financial crisis.
The world economy will be darkened by a two-year Brexit "shadow", Philip Hammond has told Sky News. Speaking on the fringes of the G20 finance ministers' meeting in Chengdu - his first overseas visit as Chancellor - Mr Hammond acknowledged the decision to leave the EU would "hang over the world economy" until at least 2018.
Britain need not suffer a recession if it leaves the European Union, the International Monetary Fund has said in its assessment of the risks around the referendum. The Fund said that the UK economy would be comparatively weaker if it left the EU but under its "limited" scenario - in which Britain stayed in the European Economic Area, the group that includes Norway - growth would slip from 2.2% to 1.4% next year.
At the time of the Bank of England's interest rate decision, no-one in the room knew who was going to be Britain's new Chancellor. This might seem like an odd thing to mention, given right now the main story people will be obsessing with is the element of shock - that the Monetary Policy Committee decided not to cut rates.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
