UK GDP Shrinks Less than Expected
The British economy shrank 0.2% on quarter in Q3 2022, the first contraction in 1-1/2-years but lower than market forecasts of a 0.5% drop, preliminary estimates showed. The services sector stalled, driven by a fall in consumer-facing services while the production sector went down 1.5%, a 7th consecutive quarter of losses, including a 2.3% fall in manufacturing and a 1% loss in mining and quarrying. In expenditure terms, household spending went down 0.5%, business investment shrank 0.5% while exports jumped 8% and imports sank 3.2%. Compared to a year earlier, the British economy expanded 2.4%, above forecasts of 2.1%. Figures could point to the beginning of the country’s longest recession since records began, with the Bank of England expecting the economy to contract 0.75% in the second half of 2022 and continue to fall in 2023 and first half of 2024, as high inflation and interest rates weigh sharply on households and businesses.
