UK inflation surprises with rise to 10.1%, a new 40-year high – business live

Aug 17, 2022

Squeeze on consumer incomes tightens as fuel and food prices rocket, with bread, cereals, milk, cheese and eggs becoming dearer LIVE Updated  First published on Wed 17 Aug 2022 01.43 EDT Key events A shopping trolley is filled with groceries at the new Tarleton Aldi store on July 22, 2022.

This spike in prices is all the more painful because it is hitting at a time when: - Living standards have been squeezed for over a decade, leaving people with little cushion to absorb this 1/5 - Millions of families were already unable to make ends meet because our social safety net has been ripped up, and - Public services are on their knees after years of underinvestment. 2/5 Leaving families & the economy to languish won’t prevent inflation getting worse, & risks a deep recession which will scar our economy. 3/5 2️⃣ Boost benefits by £17bn to restore our safety net, & combine that with direct payments for families on low-modest incomes to support with the cost of living. 3️⃣ Increase the #WindfallTax to 20%, which would bring in £14bn a year. 4/5 4️⃣ Freeze #energybills whist reforming the energy market by investing in #retrofitting millions of homes, breaking up the monopoly power of the big providers, and flooding the system with cheaper renewables from by co-operative companies that the public own. 5/5 Updated at 04.06 EDT Mike Owens, global sales trader at Saxo Markets, said: The immediate market reaction was a 20 pips rally in sterling-dollar on the signal more will need to be done by the Bank of England to tighten monetary conditions, with a 0.5% rate rise in September now being fully priced in by markets. The spike higher in sterling has already begun to fade and the double bottom formed at $1.20 this month remains as key support level. Sterling is now little changed at $1.2091 versus the dollar, and trading 0.16% higher against the euro at €1.1907. Updated at 03.49 EDT Lord Rose urges 'targeted action' for 'those who need it most' Lord Rose, the chairman of Asda and former boss of Marks & Spencer, is on radio 4 now and advocated “targeted action” for “those who need it most”. He stressed that inflation must be “killed” because it’s “pernicious” and “erodes wealth over time”. We have been very, very slow in recognising this train coming down the tunnel and it is now here and… it’s going to run quite a lot of people over, and we have to deal with the aftermath of that. 10.1% this morning and it’s going to go up further. The first thing that I’d like to hear from people, and in particular those who are leaders, is to say: Look, this is a serious problem. It’s not a serious problem, it’s a crisis, number one. Number two, it’s a crisis which is not about to go away. Number three, that you’re going to have to live with this. Number four, we can’t help everybody, number five, we can help some people and this is what we’re going to do. Nothing is happening, we are sitting here into the fourth month into this crisis and we’re still waiting to see what action will be taken. It’s horrifying. The poorest need targeted help, he said. Some money has gone to them, some more money is going to them but it will not be enough. In a dig at Sajid Javid, he said: What more facts is he waiting for? We have the facts, we need action. I don’t believe you can grow your way out of inflation… We need to kill inflation first and of course we need to sew the seeds of growth. It’s going to be painful for everybody… It picks on the poorest hardest but we have to deal with it, we can’t ignore it. It’s inevitable that interest rates have to go up. That will cause some short-term pain but you will only get the long-term gain if you have short-term pain. Stuart Rose. Photograph: Dylan Martinez/Reuters Updated at 03.50 EDT Debapratim De, senior economist at Deloitte, said: With inflation above 10% and widely expected to rise further as energy bills increase, base interest rates look fairly low at 1.75%. We expect swift action from the Bank of England with the base rate potentially doubling by this time next year. As the Bank moves aggressively to crush double-digit inflation, we are forecasting a 1.6% contraction in activity between this autumn and the next. This is a much smaller contraction than the pandemic but, with a sharp squeeze on consumer spending power and likely rise in unemployment, will feel significantly disruptive. Urvish Patel, economist at the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, a respected think tank, noted: Underlying inflation increased in all of the 12 UK regions in July, although inflation in the East Midlands is now the highest at 8%. Updated at 03.15 EDT Sajid Javid: 'We need to cut taxes to get the economy going' Sajid Javid, a former chancellor and a supporter of Liz Truss, the frontrunner to become the next prime minister, said he wasn’t shocked by the figures because we had recently heard the Bank of England’s forecast. He said on BBC radio 4’s Today programme: It underlines the need to go forward with a credible economic plan that tackles inflation of course and the cost of living challenges which are immense but also a long-term plan for growth and that is one of the key reasons why I’m backing Liz Truss. He said it’s a global problem, but things can be done at home, like providing the “right type of support to people” for example with energy bills, such as tax cuts, as Truss has hinted. There will be an emergency budget within weeks of taking office if she is the new prime minister and this will be an absolute priority. Asked whether there would be more handouts to people to help them through the cost of living crisis, he said: She has also made clear that nothing is off the table. It does require immediate action and she recognises that. Javid stressed: Our long-term, what’s called the trend growth rate, has not recovered since the global financial crisis and we do need to do a lot more. We cannot tax our way into growth with tax levels almost at the highest in 70 years. We need to address that and cut taxes to make further supply side reforms to get the economy going again. Updated at 03.47 EDT Mike Bell, global market strategist at J.P. Morgan Asset Management, explains the dilemma for policymakers. Rising inflation is really putting the squeeze on real wages, even with strong wage growth. And with the increase in energy bills coming in October, it’s only set to get worse. To avoid a large hit to consumers, significant further fiscal stimulus would be required beyond what is currently being proposed by either candidate to be the next prime minister. However, if enough stimulus is provided to largely offset the hit to consumers, then the Bank of England may well feel the need to continue raising interest rates. This could then pose a risk to consumption and the housing market via higher mortgage costs. So unless wage growth and hence underlying inflationary pressures moderate on their own without a rise in unemployment, UK policymakers are stuck between a rock and a hard place. Jake Finney, economist at PwC, said: UK consumer price inflation increased to 10.1% in July, reaching double digits for the first time since 1982. As this is slightly higher than the Bank of England’s expectation of 9.9%, we expect today’s CPI data to add to existing pressure for the Bank to act more decisively, perhaps by increasing its headline policy rate by 50 basis points in its next meeting in September. Compared to other peer economies - France, Italy, Germany and the US - the UK now records the highest rate of harmonised inflation and is the only advanced economy now in double digits. We expect inflation to continue rising in the next few months, reaching its peak in January 2023 as the energy price cap is uplifted once more and household energy bills potentially exceed £4.2k a year. Though some of this impact could potentially be offset by additional government support. Ruth Gregory, senior UK economist at Capital Economics, said: While inflation in the US may now have reached a peak, we still think that CPI inflation in the UK will rise to at least 12.5% in October and that the Bank of England will raise interest rates from 1.75% now to 3.00%, even when the economy is in recession. That remains a higher forecast than the peak of 2.55% envisaged by the consensus of analysts. But, aside from surging energy costs, there are some positive signs: Admittedly, there were some signs that global price pressures are easing. Second-hand car price inflation fell for the fourth month in a row from +15.2% to +8.6%. Inflation in this category was initially driven high by red-hot demand and shortages of supply during the pandemic. What’s more, price pressures further up the supply chain eased. Input price inflation dropped from 14.9% in June to 14.6% in July and core producer output prices eased from 14.9% to 14.6%. But there were further signs that the global drivers of inflation are being replaced by domestic ones. Rents inflation increased from 3.2% to 3.8% in July. Moreover, services inflation (which is mostly driven by domestic factors) rose from 5.2% in June to a 30-year high of 5.7% in July. DOUBLE DIGITS... UK inflation hits 10.1% in July - beating economists' expectations AGAIN - more than 5x the BOE's target - a new 40 year high That leaves another 50bp hike v much on the table at the Bank's Sept meeting Suren Thiru, economics Director for the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, said: Red-hot inflation is suffocating the UK economy, and with the peak some way off, the risk of recession is rising. The latest increase means that the cost-of-living crisis is escalating as inflation continues to outstrip pay growth, eroding people’s incomes. Companies’ ability to operate is also under significant pressure as they see their own costs surge and customer demand wilt. Inflation may moderate a little in August as strong base effects caused by the comparison with August 2021, when inflation leaped from 2.0% to 3.2%, impacts the calculation. However, with eye-watering increases in energy bills due from October, inflation is on track to peak at over 13%. With inflation soaring, another half-point interest rate rise in September is very much on the table. However, with the looming recession likely to help bring down inflation, the case for continuing to tighten monetary policy should diminish. UK inflation rises more than expected to 40-year high of 10.1% https://t.co/KNos5VFb6X pic.twitter.com/PCpOMAbrKX
