What the Chancellor won’t tell us

The Chancellor will squeeze as much political juice out of Wednesday's Autumn Statement to try and regain the agenda ahead of an election next year. But he won't tell us that bigger pre-election policies are likely to be announced in next March's Budget or that the structural rise in interest rates leaves the fiscal outlook looking more fragile. The latter means the financial markets will be less forgiving than in the past.

We’ll be discussing the UK macro and market consequences of the Chancellor’s Autumn statement at 10:00 EST/15:00 GMT on 22nd November. Register here for this 20-minute online briefing.
