With Brexit still unresolved and the global economy now slowing, the outlook for the UK economy and its financial markets appears ominous. At our UK Forecast Forum, we considered how the UK usually fares when the global economy slows, how businesses and households will respond and how Brexit will influence the situation. We also assessed how policymakers and the financial markets will respond to both Brexit and the global slowdown. We concluded that 2020 might be a much better year for the UK economy than most people are expecting.

Can households pick up the baton?

Thomas Pugh, our UK Economist, discusses the following:

  • What will happen to real wages?
  • Will households be willing to spend more?
  • Will higher interest rates hurt?
