Last quote by Ruth Gregory

Meanwhile, there are reasons to think that nominal wage growth should start to pick up in the quarters ahead, as higher inflation makes it more difficult for employers to award lower wage rises, a gradual pick-up in productivity growth improves firms' ability to grant larger pay increases and the past tightening in the labour market leads to at least some strengthening in pay growth.feedback

Ruth Gregory quotes

Apr 11 2017 - Easter

Air fares inflation should add a few tenths of a percentage point back onto the CPI rate in April, while electricity prices will rise sharply in the coming months as a result of utility companies' price hikes. As a result, we think that CPI inflation will peak at just over 3pc before the end of the year.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Easter

While food price inflation rose, from 0.3 percent to 1.6 percent, this was offset by a fall in core inflation from 2.0 percent to 1.8 percent. However, the latter mainly reflects a statistical quirk related to the timing of Easter. We think that CPI (consumer price index) inflation will peak at just over 3 percent before the end of the year. But we don't think that that will panic the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) into raising rates imminently. After all, the MPC tolerated an inflation overshoot of 3 percentage points in 2011.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Brexit

All told, we think that CPI inflation will peak at just over 3% before the end of 2017. But we don't think that that will panic the MPC into raising rates imminently. Given the uncertainty around the Brexit negotiations and the fact that there has been little sign of building domestic cost pressures, we think that the MPC will hold off until mid-2018 before raising rates.feedback

Today's deluge of UK economic data was fairly disappointing and adds to the evidence that the economy has lost some momentum during Q1.feedback

Apr 05 2017

March's strong UK Markit/CIPS report on services provides some reassurance that the economy won't slow too sharply this year, despite the intensifying headwinds.feedback
