Forget What The Papers Say - Here Are 12 Reasons Why The UK Economy Will Boom Again Soon!


An excellent article by Charles Orton-Jones of London loves Business


Ignore the gloomy headlines - our economy is set to roar out of recession

Here’s a heretical thought: The UK economy is storming back to prosperity. In fact, if things carry on we’ll be back to 3 per cent growth pretty soon and all indicators will be pointing in the right direction. Even today things are pretty damn good.

Absurd? Well, most voters will tell you it is – the GfK index of consumer confidence in the economy over the next 12 months is at minus 30, indicative of mass national pessimism. Nationwide’s barometer of public confidence is low and falling.

Yet the data tells a different story, one of growth, job creation and low inflation. We really could be on the brink of a spectacular revival.

So if you want to start humming Rule Britannia and telling cynics that this sceptred isle is on its way back then are here are 12 cast-iron reasons you can reel off.
