UK economy outlook: More inflation, more interest rate hikes

We think inflation will be the key challenge for the UK economy in 2022. The combination of rising global costs and a hike in domestic utility prices at the start of April will take CPI inflation up from its current 30-year high to over 7%.

Our recently-published Q1 2022 UK Economic Outlook provides a comprehensive view of how the UK’s economy and policy will evolve this year, assessing the key issues that will shape macro and market outcomes.

Themes discussed in this report include:

  • Inflation and the labour market
  • Economic growth
  • Monetary and fiscal policy
