Missed opportunities blight a prudent Budget, says CPS
Wednesday, 22 November 2017
Daniel Mahoney, Head of Economic Research at the CPS, said:  “The headline story from this Budget was the dramatic downgrading of Britain’s productivity forecasts – a minute-long section of Philip Hammond’s speech that will add as much to the deficit as the rest of it put together. In 2019, for example, productivity growth will be 0.7 percentage points lower than was predicted earlier this year. Overall, these revisions to productivity will knock nearly 3 percentage points off nominal GDP growth over the next five years.
Comment: Brexit uncertainty wreaking havoc for GDP growth and budget deficit
Wednesday, 22 November 2017
Commenting on today’s Budget and its immediate impact on markets, Shilen Shah, Bond Strategist at Investec Wealth & Investment, said: “Brexit remains the key area of uncertainty for both GDP growth and the budget deficit, with the key unknown being whether a comprehensive deal can be achieved in both the goods and service sectors. In anticipation of costs associated with new a relationship with the EU, the government confirmed that it had already spent £750m on Brexit preparations, with a further £3bn set aside. The key risk for the economy however remains whether a service sector agreement can be reached, given that it makes up more than 80% of the economy and its one area of trade where the UK has a surplus with the EU –in contrast to the manufacturing sector.” 
ASTL comments on today's Autumn Budget statement
Wednesday, 22 November 2017
Benson Hersch, CEO of the Association of Short Term Lenders (ASTL), comments today on the Autumn Budget statement: “The Chancellor’s announcement that the Government will facilitate the building of 300,000 new homes a year, is welcome but ultimately we have heard promise after promise from successive Governments on house building, to little effect. Without a significant increase in social housing this is a pipe dream, especially as current figures include permitted development (offices to flats for example) rather than 'ground up' building.

Comment: An economists' view ahead of the UK Autumn Budget
Wednesday, 22 November 2017
“There are a number of measures rumoured in the Autumn Budget that are likely to impact UK businesses, including changes to how business rates are calculated and investment in technology such as 5G connectivity and driverless cars. Following the Bank of England’s interest rate increase, there has been a widespread call for business rates to be frozen. Many businesses are keen to see supportive measures from the government to help them weather the challenges of our current environment, increase productivity and stimulate economic growth.
