    Czech Republic: in 2017, the politics of fear

    The Eurobarometer survey sets out the percentage of citizens who chose the defined category as being part of the two major problems that their country is facing.

  • Edition February 14, 2018 UK: CPI inflation and MPC's projections

    The BoE continues to expect an overshoot in CPI inflation relative to target at the three-year point (by 11bp) and maintains its view that, as the contribution from external factors – notably the effects of the past depreciation of sterling on import costs – slowly dissipates, domestic inflationary pressures are likely to firm as the economy moves to excess demand from excess supply.

  • Edition February 2, 2018 France: Household ability to purchase homes

    At each period, we calculate the surface area an average household can buy at market prices, lending rates and mortgage duration in line with an affordability ratio of 30% (mortage repayments/income). This indicator thus measures a household's ability to purchase a home. The surface area that this average household can afford changes cyclically around an average surface area of about 90sq.m.

  • Edition 26 January 2018 UK: Household consumption and consumer confidence

    Purchasing power should pick up slightly over the coming quarters due to the effect of a forecast gradual easing of inflation and a slight uptick in the rate of increase in wages, both factors that should have more impact than the slowdown in employment. Growth in real incomes should nevertheless remain weak.
