Bankrupting Britain's AAA Credit Rating at Risk / Interest-Rates / UK Debt

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe credit ratings agency Moody's in late as usual move woke up to the fact that Britain's public sector net debt looks set to mushroom to more than 100% of GDP and therefore threatens Britain's AAA credit rating status, which currently stands at AAA "resilient" below that of AAA "resistant" as enjoyed by the likes of Germany and France. Especially as Britain lags virtually all other major economies in terms of economic recovery.

UK Budget Deficit Could Hit £200 Billion, 18% of GDP / Economics / UK Debt

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe public sector net borrowing requirement (PSBR), which is the deficit between government revenues and expenditure for October came in at £11.4 billion (£0 Oct 2008), the worst October since records began which surprised mainstream academic economist projections for the month of between £4-7 billion which compares against my own projection of £12 billion. The deficit for 2009/10 now totals £86.9 billion which on face value is inline with the the Governments target of £175 billion by the end of the current financial year.

Conservative £7 Billion Spending Cuts a Drop in Britain's Debt Ocean / Economics / UK Debt

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShadow Chancellor George Osbourne announced net public sector spending and budget cuts totaling £7 billion at the Conservative party conference. However the proposed cuts are but a mere drop in the debt ocean that on their own do not amount to anything of real significance when one compares to an annual budget deficit that is expected to break above £200 billion this fiscal year.

Labour Governments Bankrupt Scorched Earth UK Economy for the Conservative Government / ElectionOracle / UK Debt

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Labour government is reeling from the MP expenses scandal that looks set to see as many as half of its members of parliament disappear at the next General Election. A recent opinion poll in the Times puts Labour trailing behind the fringe Euro-skeptic UKIP party at just 16%, with the opposition Conservatives at 30% are failing to fully capitalise on Labours meltdown due to their own crooked MP's, and the Lib Dem's similarly skimming along at a low 12%. Whilst this and similar polls are dire for the Labour party which do suggest electoral wipeout in the June 4th European Elections, however they do not represent what is likely to occur at the May 2010 General Election which this article will seek to elaborate upon.

Bankrupt Britain's Debt Credit Ratings Crash / Economics / UK Debt

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn the day when the Government announced a surge in net public borrowing for April 09 totaling £8.5 billion against £1.8 billion a year earlier (the deficit is the difference between what the government earns against what it spends), the S&P credit agency cut Britain's credit worthiness to negative from stable which puts Britain's AAA credit rating into question, the direct impact of which would be that Britain would near immediately be required to pay a higher interest rate on the continuing huge surge of bonds being issued in advance of the 2010 general election, as Labour throws all of the fiscal rules out of the window in an attempt at turning the economy around by 2010 to prevent a Westminister wipeout.

Labour Government Enslaves the British Tax Payer to a Decade of Paying for the Bankers Crimes / Politics / UK Debt

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Chancellor Alistair Darling in his recent budget started to come clean on the huge amounts of debt that the country will need to borrow on just its visible official balance sheet as illustrated by the below graph. However much talk by politicians and the mainstream media about how there will now need to be severe cuts in public spending and tax cuts to reduce the level of debt are partially in-correct, in that yes taxes will rise and public spending will be cut to stabilise the budget deficit, but the argument that the level of debt must be reduced is flawed and fly's in the face of over 300 years of history of debt accumulation since the founding of the Bank of England.

Darling's Recession Debt Crisis Budget, Britain's £1.2 Trillion Public Sector Black Hole / Economics / UK Debt

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDarlings irresponsible budget resulted in a a net give away of £5 billion today, against borrowing of £175 billion for 2009 as against the Chancellors own forecast of barely 6 months ago of borrowing of £38 billion. Instead of positioning the countries finances to cope with the huge public sector budget deficit the government has instead focused itself on the next general election which is still a year away.

UK Budget 2009 Debt Deficit, Basic Rate Income Tax Could Rise to 30% / Politics / UK Debt

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday, Alistair Darling delivers his 2009 budget, the certainty of which will be to finally recognise the huge debt crisis that the country faces as this years budget deficit is set to explode to 12% of GDP or £160 billion which is set against Alistair Darlings November 08 forecast of £38 billion against my analysis at the time which pointed to a 2009 deficit of £160 billion (Bankrupt Britain Trending Towards Hyper-Inflation?). This and the recognition of the severe recession which will prompt a revision to economic contraction to GDP -3% from -1% for this year which is set against my forecast of -4.3% for 2009.
