Chief Economist, Keith Wade, comments on the Japanese economy, and why he expects 2015 to be a good year for the country:
-Japan is a big importer of oil and the fall in oil price will drive down inflation, meaning that real incomes in Japan will be positive, which will be a great help to the consumer
-The consumer is also going to benefit in 2015 as there aren’t any tax increases, which really hit the economy in 2015
-Finally, the fall in the yen means that the Japanese corporate sector is now very competitive, which should flow through into strong export growth and will support GDP growth in Japan
Chief Economist, Keith Wade, gives his views on the outlook for the UK economy in 2015:
-The UK economy is growing strongly as we come in to 2015, but it will face some headwinds over the next few months in the form of the general election and proposed austerity measures
-Both main parties have indicated an intention to improve the budget position and get back from surplus, which could lead to tax increases and spending cuts
-This creates a difficult backdrop for the Bank of England – we expect them to raise interest rates in November this year, but don’t expect that this will come any earlier than that as the economy may not be as strong as expected and inflation will have fallen following the fall in oil prices
Chief Economist, Keith Wade, comments on the key factors that could have an impact on emerging markets this year:
-The performance of the Chinese economy will be one of the determining factors for the wider emerging markets this year – we think it’s going to continue to slow down and we could see a downgrade in growth from the Chinese government later this year
-Commodity prices are also a factor – they have fallen quite substantially, which has hit emerging markets. However, there is a chance for stability in commodity prices later in the year, which could prove beneficial
-More stable commodity prices, combined with better growth in the Eurozone and US could see the outlook for emerging markets improve, but we’re probably looking at the second half of the year, rather than the first
