MNI POLICY: The National Institute of Economic...>

UK: MNI POLICY: The National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR)
published its quarterly forecasts for the UK and world economies Wednesday ahead
of the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee's (MPC's) quarterly projections
which are out Thursday. NIESR's work highlighted the tricky challenges facing
it, and the BOE, in producing forecasts for the UK economy at present: NIESR
anticipates that the MPC will hike Bank Rate by 25 basis points to 0.75% on the
Thursday, with the policy rate then rising on up to 1.25% in 2019. The outlook
is cloudy with NIESR head Jagjit Chadha saying that the MPC should take the
opportunity to stress the uncertainty of its policy stance. Chadha said that the
MPC should stress that it is ready to reverse the hike, if necessary.
