Economy in Brief

Yr/Yr UK GDP Growth Holds Steady
by Robert Brusca August 24, 2007

GDP steady Y/Y up Q/Q on stronger private consumption.


UK trends are more or less in tact with the release of the Q2 GDP report. Both exports and imports are sharply lower owing to a boost in both flows in Q1 2006. Quarterly trade flows show that exports are lagging a bit more in their recovery compared to imports. Private consumption is still strong, unlike on the continent.
