This special episode of The Weekly Briefing from Capital Economics presents our Drop-In briefing to clients the morning after the UK general election. Group Chief Economist Neil Shearing spoke to Paul Dales, Ruth Gregory and Ashley Webb from our UK Economics team about the results. During this 25-minute briefing, they highlight key implications for the UK economic outlook as they address client questions, including:
  • How much the new Labour government could increase spending;
  • What the new government could do to boost the UK's dire productivity growth rates;
  • Whether Labour could drive a surge in housing construction – and what that could mean for the economy.
We hold several Drop-Ins each week on key issues around macro and markets. These short, online briefings are designed to get clients the analysis and answers they need as quickly as possible. See our upcoming Drop-Ins and watch recordings of previous events here
