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.
Levels of consumer confidence in Britain have fallen at the fastest rate in more than two decades - the first statistical evidence from a major body that the EU referendum vote has had an impact on the economy. The confidence barometer from research group GfK dropped from -1 points to -9 between June and the week following the poll.
That was how long the Chancellor's message of reassurance to market investors lasted today. George Osborne resurfaced at the Treasury just after 7am to tell investors that the UK economy remains strong, to assure them and households that he would take all necessary contingency plans to deal with the instability following the Brexit vote.
The problem is not our relationship with the European Union. That can be resolved in the coming years and, who knows, might turn into something more functional than the incoherent muddle it has become in the wake of the euro crisis.
This much we know: today is already one of the most extraordinary and volatile days in UK economic history. For the time being, leave aside, if you can, all your questions about the future of the United Kingdom, about the fate of the government, even about whether Britain will be better off outside the European Union.
Here are some initial stream-of-consciousness thoughts. Apologies if they're a bit incoherent. This much we know: today is already one of the most extraordinary and volatile days in UK economic history. For the time being, leave aside, if you can, all your questions about the future of the United Kingdom, about the fate of the government, even about whether Britain will be better off outside the European Union.
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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney 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.
