UK’s record low interest rates should be raised next February, says NIESR
The Bank of England should start to raise interest rates at the beginning of next year to ensure inflation does not overshoot its 2pc target, new analysis shows. The National Institute of Social and Economic Research (NIESR) expects policymakers to lift rates from a record low of 0.5pc in February 2016. This contrasts with market expectations, which as late as last week had not price -in a rate rise until spring 2017 on concerns about China, its impact on global inflation and bets that the US Federal Reserve may not raise rates until next year.

Businesses could replace workers with machines because of higher minimum wage, says CBI boss
The Government’s plan to increase the minimum wage so that it is closer to a living wage is a “gamble”, the director of the Confederation of British Industry has said. John Cridland, the business group’s outgoing director, told the Guardian newspaper the wage increase could lead to the automation of certain jobs.
“The national living wage of £9 an hour is a laudable objective. The increase to £7.20 next April looks OK, but you can’t guarantee what will happen in the next four years. Increasing wages by 5% a year for four years will result in 25% of people being on the national living wage,” he said.
