Bank of England’s Agents’ Summary of Business Conditions, Q3-2021:  At its meeting this week, the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) of the Bank of England (BoE) voted unanimously to keep the Bank Rate at 0.1% and by 7-to-2 to maintain the current level of assets purchases.  This comes despite their forecast that inflation will rise to more than +4% in the 4th quarter of 2021 (mainly because of the rise in gas prices and other goods prices) and could remain there into the first half of 2022.

The MTA's Annual Forecast Seminar will be held on 21st October 2021 at The Willows Centre, Wyboston Lakes Resort, Bedfordshire.

UK Manufacturing Output, July 2021:  As we will see in the next item, data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) highlights the difference between production and manufacturing which may not be obvious in the headlines.  Therefore, while total production grew by +1.2% in July (compared to June), manufacturing output was unchanged;  this was because the growth in production was entirely driven by an increase in oil production as an oilfield came back on-line after maintenance.
