Last quote by Alan Clarke

This is in stark contrast to the survey data which were pointing to an absolute bloodbath. Things are probably as bad as they are going to get, so I'd be hesitant to extrapolate the downward trend too far. Next year should be a better year as lower inflation and firmer wages reverse this year's downwards trend.feedback

Alan Clarke quotes

Jun 19 2017

Policymakers are not in much of a position to respond – interest rates are already very low, QE dubious in its effectiveness, and it doesn't look like there will be any loosening of fiscal plans for now. Perversely, it may be a catalyst for faster wage growth, which we've been longing for.feedback

May 25 2017

The outcome was in line with our forecast, but below the consensus expectation for 0.3% quarter-on-quarter and the BoE – in the fullness of time – expects the growth rate to be 0.4%. So this is disappointing and like driving down the motorway at 20mph instead of 70mph.feedback

With inflation likely to continue accelerating sharply, the headwinds facing the consumer will intensify, which in turn is likely to slow the pace of consumer spending later in the year. We therefore remain of the view that the pace of GDP growth has further downside into the end of the year.feedback

May 16 2017

We remain convinced that the market is underestimating the further upside for inflation from here.feedback

The key message is likely to be that all options are open. The Bank retains an implicit bias to hike, but is not in a great hurry to deliver.feedback

Pretty much everyone is expecting growth to slow this year because of a weakening consumer. Still, I'd be minded to think that GDP rebounds a little bit into the second quarter, probably up from 0.3% quarter-on-quarter in the first quarter to 0.4-0.5% quarter-on-quarter during the second quarter.feedback

Manufacturing was weak in January, but it rose by 2.2pc month-on-month in December. It was on drugs - literally. Pharmaceuticals boomed by almost 20pc in the prior two months and slipped back by 13.5pc in January. We shouldn't be too concerned by that. The [surveys] are overstating the downside for now.feedback

Mar 03 2017

Notwithstanding the disappointment, that is what everyone has been expecting to happen - we just hoped we were wrong.feedback

Feb 17 2017

The theme for most forecasters this year is that consumer spending is going to suffer as higher prices erode real incomes. But I don't think anyone would have expected the pace of spending to have suffered so much so soon.feedback

It's a currency effect – gilts are cheaper to buy but also a lot of these overseas investors are mandated to maintain a certain percentage of their portfolios in sterling assets, which means they have been compelled to buy gilts.feedback

I guess it's no accident that when her language pointed to a hard Brexit...the pound weakened.feedback

Jul 27 2016 - Anheuser-Busch

I appreciate this will cause lots of internal and external speculation. However, please stay focused, and I will updated you as soon as I am able to.feedback

Jul 27 2016 - Anheuser-Busch

The board needs to consider the revised offer, taking into account all facts and circumstances.feedback

Jun 30 2016

It's an amber warning light. It still seems to be the investment income balance, but it's not getting any worse ... It's partly because we've been growing faster than our overseas partners.feedback

Aug 16 2012

Retail sales do correlate with one of the big services components, so there's a good chance that all the doom and gloom for Q2 was overdone.feedback
