Bank of England economist's view on interest rates

13 Nov 2015

In a speech given yesterday at the Trades Union Congress, Andy Haldane said that "the case for raising interest rates is still some way from being made", and that global economic momentum has "slowed toward trend"

He mentioned that in this context, the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) should remain evenly balanced between raising and lowering rates - because if the momentum slows below trend, then a rate rise would add downwood pressure on already weak prices

Financial markets are now indicating that the first UK rate rise will not be until 2017
