Janet Mui: weekly economic update 1 August

  • The Fed has cut rates by a quarter of a percentage point, but markets are dismayed at the lack of indication of future cuts to follow
  • The cut is billed as a "mid-cycle adjustment" and a pre-emptive move, in the manner of insurance
  • In the UK rates were left unchanged, and the Bank of England's Mark Carney was subject to numerous questions about policy response to a "no-deal" Brexit. He failed to answer in any detail other than to say that a no-deal scenario would see the UK economy slow, inflation rise and the pound fall
