Next week's economics: April 7 - 11

The UK, US and euro area economies are growing nicely but there are two reasons for concern, next week’s figures could show.

On Tuesday, UK industrial and manufacturing output could show small rises in February, which would put output on course to match Q4’s growth rate. This should be corroborated by NIESR's estimate of GDP later that day, which is likely to show that the economy grew by around 0.7 per cent in Q1, the same rate as in Q4.

NIESR receives funding from the ESRC.
