With annual consumer price inflation down to 1.2 per cent, it marked the first time since 2009 that real regular pay has risen.This means wage packets can now buy more goods and services than they could before.Pay grew even faster in the private sector, climbing 1.6 per cent on the year. Unemployment has also fallen to six per cent in the three months to September from 6.3 per cent in the three months to June – the lowest rate of joblessness for five years. Trade unionists remain sceptical of the recovery in the jobs market.“Huge concerns remain about the quality of many of the jobs being created, and as the chancellor has found out to his cost many people are not earning enough to pay much tax, if any,” said Frances O’Grady of the TUC. The government maintained its upbeat stance on the labour market.“Two-thirds of the rise in employ­ment since 2010 has actually been in managerial and professional occupations, and if we look at the various rise across sectors, all sectors have grown and an array of jobs within that,” Esther McVey, minister of state for employment, told City A.M.

The firms also say they are currently preferring to pay down current debt.“For over a year now, SMEs have been in a more positive mood, but this has not translated into in­creased appetite for external fin­ance,” said Shiona Davies, director at BDRC Continental.

Cheap oil won’t help recovery, warns IMF chief Christine Lagarde

first_imgThursday 15 January 2015 11:20 am Emma Haslett whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share Cheap oil won’t help recovery, warns IMF chief Christine Lagarde whatsapp Cheap oil is unlikely to speed up recovery, International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Christine Lagarde has warned, adding that global recovery is currently too “lopsided”.In a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, Lagarde suggested that although growth in the US and a lower oil price has given economies a helping hand, the world is facing a “very strong headwind”. “A shot in the arm [from cheap oil] is good, but if the global economy is weak on its knees, it’s not going to help,” she said. Lagarde cautioned against being “more upbeat” about the prospects for the global economy.Too many countries are still weighed down by the legacies of the financial crisis, including high debt and high unemployment. Too many companies and households keep cutting back on investment and consumption today because they are concerned about low growth in the future.The cause? “Lacklustre investment”, she said.And in the week the World Bank slashed its forecast for global economic growth Lagarde echoed its warning that the US alone cannot drive global recovery – and that if the US Fed chooses to raise rates too soon, it could “risk harm to world financial stability”. The oil price and US growth are not a cure for deep-seated weakness elsewhere.But citing the landing of the spacecraft Rosetta on a comet late last year, she added that the global economy was likely to experience three “Rosetta moments” in 2015 – three major policy challenges that will require courageous political decision making.The first will be the challenge of injecting new momentum into the recovery, the second will be generating “more inclusive growth”, and the third will be “engendering more sustainable growth”.There are no secrets about what can engender growth. But if they are to deliver on the three Rosetta moments, they need to enhance global cooperation. They need to embrace what I have called the “new multilateralism”. This is the year when it should be put into practice.

PMI: UK manufacturing gets off to a good 2015 as costs drop while orders grow

first_img whatsapp PMI: UK manufacturing gets off to a good 2015 as costs drop while orders grow Catherine Neilan UK manufacturing has had a good start to the year, with output and new orders both shrugging off the slowdown at the end of last year.  Figures out this morning show that the UK’s manufacturing PMI rose to 53 in January, up from 52.7 in December, which was itself revised up from 52.5.  Headline PMI has been above the neutral 50 mark – which demonstrates growth – since April 2013.  Manufacturing output expanded for the 23rd consecutive month, thanks to a further increase in incoming new orders, primarily from the domestic market.  Solid output growth was registered at both intermediate and investment goods producers. However, the rate of growth in the consumer goods output ground to a near standstill pace.  There was also a modest increase in new business from overseas, representing the first meaningful improvement in new export order volumes registered for five months.  Companies reported increased demand from France, Germany, Japan, the Middle East, Poland and the US.  All this means good things for jobs; staffing levels have risen for the 21st successive month, although the rate has eased back to a three-month low.  The rate of purchase price deflation accelerated sharply to its steepest since 2009, with nearly a third of companies reporting a decline in input costs owing to the slump in the oil price.  Rob Dobson, senior economist at Markit, which compiles the survey, said: “The big mover in the latest survey was the input prices index, as the recent slump in oil prices saw manufacturers’ purchasing costs fall at one of the fastest rates seen over the past 16 years.  “Selling prices also fell for only the second time in five years. Waning inflationary pressures will provide the Bank of England with leeway to push back the first rate increase to late-2015 at the earliest.”  David Noble, group chief executive at the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply, said: “Manufacturers were picking up the pace a little as the sector reported a marginal increase in activity driven by domestic demand which continued to show signs of life.  “Though the overall index showed a modest increase, it may be enough to allay fears of an overall slowdown in the UK economy as the Eurozone continues to experience problems.” He added: “The world’s eyes will be focused on reactions to Eurozone deflation and a response to the UK’s disinflationary pressures and how all this will be played out for manufacturing in the months ahead.”  Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comBeverly Hills MDPlastic Surgeon Explains: “Doing This Every Morning Can Snap Back Sagging Skin” (No Creams Needed)Beverly Hills MDNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableyUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementIf Your Dog Eats Grass (Do This Every Day)Ultimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorUltimate Pet NutritionIf Your Dog Eats Dry Food, Do This Every DayUltimate Pet Nutrition Monday 2 February 2015 6:02 am whatsapp Share Tags: Manufacturing sector Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI)last_img read more
