How Much does the UK Really Owe in Debt? / Interest-Rates / UK Debt

By: Dylan_Moran

We all hear horror stories about debt and how it’s piling up, but few people know the actual numbers. They’re left wondering how much the UK really owes in debt. Those figures don’t look good. In fact, it’s fair to say that the average Brit owes more than they ever have.

British households were spending around an average of £900 more than they earned during 2017, pushing personal debt into a deficit not seen since the credit boom of the 1980s.

Are UK Consumers Taking Too Much Debt? / Interest-Rates / UK Debt

By: Nicholas_Kitonyi

The UK lending market has benefited from the reduced lending rates after the interest rate was reduced to an historical low. The UK base interest rate was cut in half in August last year to 0.25% in a bid to stimulate economic growth and it has remained at this level for the last eight months. This affected the UK Prime Lending Rate, which fell to 1.25% from about 1.55% in July and has since remained fixed at this level.

George Osborne's BrExit Excuse to Scrap UK Government Debt, Deficit and Borrowing Targets / Economics / UK Debt

By: Nadeem_Walayat

George Osborne Friday announced that he would be using BrExit as an excuse to scrap the cornerstone of his economic policy, one of ending this parliament with an annual budget surplus, instead now stating:

"The referendum result is as expected likely to lead to a significant negative shock for the British economy. How we respond will determine the impact on people’s jobs and on economic growth.

The Bank of England can support demand.

The government must provide fiscal credibility so we will continue to be tough on the deficit but we must be realistic about achieving a surplus by the end of this decade as precisely the flexibility that our rules provide for, and we need to reduce uncertainty by moving as quickly as possible to a new relationship with Europe and being super competitive, open for business and free trading. That’s the plan and we must set to it.”

UK Government Debt Propaganda Continues as OBR Revises Borrowing Higher / Economics / UK Debt

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Office of Budgetary Responsibility has once more dutifully pumped out economic propaganda for the UK government in its latest report, where the most notable revision was to increase the amount the government will borrow over its term in office from the original £115 billion (May 2015) to now £178bn, a 54% increase in the amount they said they would borrow at the outset, and which is set against their November 2015 revision higher to £143bn.

Government Debt Is Not Like Private Debt / Interest-Rates / UK Debt

By: MISES

Simon Wilson writesL As the Labour Party fights with Tories over the need to slightly rein in government spending in the UK, opponents of even the slightest bit of austerity have turned out to claim that there is no virtue in “living within your means.”

In a recent article in The Guardian, Ha-Joon Chang, attacked even the Tory government’s timid claim that it wasn’t a great idea to spend more than the government collects in tax revenues. But for the new radical left Labour Party on whose behalf Chang’s article was written, this notion is as quaint as it is “simply wrong.”

Payless Growth And Debt Disaster For The UK / Politics / UK Debt

By: Andrew_McKillop

The UK Economic Miracle
Only a few key figures are needed to understand how the"fastest growing economy in Europe" has effectively performed before and after the key date of 2008, whether under a pale pnk-hued New Labour government operating the Extend-and-Pretend mantra of borrow and spend, or the present pale blue Tory and Liberal Democrat governing coalition doing the same thing. The political and parliamentary  numbers game is at least as important as the economic numbers for mapping the UK's economic future. The present two-party system, in fact, could be the last truly UK-wide bicameral Westminster-dominated system and process that the UK has had, for the last several hundred years.
