The prospects for the UK
In the eighth episode of season 3, Paul talks to Simon French, Chief Economist of Panmure Gordon. The Bank of England’s forecast that the UK would enter its longest recession in 100 years has proven to be wide of the mark. But what is the outlook for the UK economy from here – do we have reasons to be optimistic? Paul and Simon discuss UK growth, what we need to do to improve productivity, global geopolitical risks and finally the outlook for the UK stock market.
