Threat of recession for the U.K. – investment will do the trick.
Soaring inflation rates in all sectors is causing a huge decline in customer spending power, due to a decrease in disposable wage. The double blow from slowing post-lockdown growth and rising living costs after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine could result in a fall in gross domestic product (GDP) for two consecutive quarters, which is the definition of a recession. The return to lower rates of activity in the health sector after a winter rush to vaccinate people against Covid-19, as well as households reining in their spending amid the soaring cost of living, are also expected to weigh on growth.
Do you believe that the U.K will recover timely from the recession?
