The Director of the NIESR on the challenges still facing the UK economy, good news notwithstanding. He looks at three key areas: young people; reforming the welfare state (with the cunning ruse that people should only pay for this sort of thing after they die - and hence when they can't vote, unless of course they're in certain sub-Saharan African states...); and end to short-termism, echoing the Armitt Report.

Since Bank of England governor Mark Carney issued his “forward guidance”, bond markets have reacted by bringing forward the date at which they implicitly expect interest rates to rise. Bank officials appear mystified by this reaction.

"The key problem with losing credibility on inflation is the mass unemployment that will be the consequence, as it was in the 1980s." Very interesting, don't worry if you don't understand all of this article yet, you will do! The author came and gave us a great speech at lunchtime 2 years ago

Absolutely tip-top stuff from Stephanie Flanders today: UK unemployment is under the microscope, with particluar interest in the 'natural rate of unemployment' and what this tells us about the state of the UK economy.

This is a first-rate piece for all Pre-U/A-Level economists to get their teeth into, nice analytical content and some excellent evaluation, highlighting the difficulties in calculating the natural rate.

Mr Peel's curator insight, September 6, 2013 6:17 PM

Great analytical report on calculating the Natural Rate of Unemployment and the problems of this.
