Leaving Brexit aside, what sort of state is our economy in? Anecdotally things look good, high employment, house prices outside the SE still rising (not saying this is good per se just sign of a buoyant economy), stock prices sustaining and, despite the plummeting pound, inflation low. If Brexit was called off tomorrow there’d be a flood of investment. On the other hand borrowing (personal, business and govt) are at record rates and its hard to see what’s sustaining us, and we’ve pulled all the economic levers already (interest rates, QE). Am I being my normal pessimistic self or do others feel we’re facing a recession some time soon regardless of Brexit? I guess you could say nothing which happens domestically matters and it all depends on the continuing US ‘economic miracle’ and them avoiding further trade wars.
