TUC Economic Quarterly Report #4

06 Jun 2014, by in Economic Reports

The latest TUC economic quarterly report provides an analysis of UK economic and labour market developments over recent months, and includes an extended feature on self-employment.

 In this issue we find

  • GDP growth has been strong since the start of 2013.
  • But GDP per capita is less impressive.
  • And returning to the pre-recession peak is taking a long time.
  • It is too early to raise interest rates to halt inflation.
  • Employment continues to grow. This is in part due to very marked increases in self-employment.
  • Average earnings continue to lag inflation
