This week’s big economic number is GDP for the third quarter, due on Wednesday morning. Economists reckon output rose by 0.3% or 0.4% in the three months to the end of September. Assuming the figure isn’t lower than expectations, economy watchers will turn quickly to the underlying trends, such as business investment. The economy has confounded predictions of a sharp post-Brexit vote slowdown or recession, mainly because of resilient consumer spending. That is becoming harder to replicate as prices rise faster than wages, consumers become wary about adding to debts and banks restrict lending. Business investment failed to take off, as the economy recovered from the recession, and unwillingness to loosen corporate purse strings has contributed to Britain’s dire record on productivity, which has become the big bugbear.
