|Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, speaks at the|
'Lord Mayor's Dinner to the Bankers and Merchants of the City of London'
Interest rates may rise sooner than expected, the Governor of the Bank of England warned.
They could begin to do so later this year, a move that will provide some long-awaited relief to savers but plunge many borrowers into difficulty.
In a speech on Thursday evening, Mark Carney gave his strongest indication yet that the first rise since the wake of the financial crash was imminent, as concern grows over a bubble in house prices. The housing market was now “the greatest risk to the domestic economy”, Mr Carney told an audience of senior bankers.
Minutes earlier, George Osborne, the Chancellor, had also announced new powers for the Bank to restrict mortgage lending in his annual Mansion House speech.
The statements from the two most powerful figures in British economic policy come as more experts are warning that the recovering economy risks overheating. » | James Kirkup, Political Editor | Thursday, June 12, 2014

Frankfurt am Main - Die Europäische Zentralbank (EZB) hat ihren Leitzins auf ein Rekordtief gesenkt und erstmals einen negativen Einlagensatz beschlossen. Angesichts der zuletzt sehr niedrigen Inflationsrate wird der Zins, zu dem sich die Geschäftsbanken bei der Notenbank Geld leihen können, um 0,10 Punkte auf 0,15 Prozent gesenkt, wie die EZB am Donnerstag nach ihrer Ratssitzung in Frankfurt mitteilte.
Der Einlagensatz, zu dem Banken kurzfristig Geld bei der Notenbank parken können, wird erstmals in den negativen Bereich gedrückt. Er sinkt von bisher null Prozent auf minus 0,10 Prozent. Der Zins für kurzfristige Ausleihungen bei der Notenbank vermindert sich von 0,75 auf 0,40 Prozent. » | nck/dpa/Reuters | Donnerstag, 05. Juni 2014

Tesco has reported its largest fall in sales for decades as shoppers turn away from Britain's biggest retailer.
The supermarket chain reported that like-for-like sales fell by 3.7pc in the UK in the three months to May 25.
Philip Clarke, Tesco's chief executive, admitted he had not experienced a larger fall in sales during his 40 years at the retailer.
Tesco is losing sales as the German discounters Aldi and Lidl attract shoppers at a rapid pace.
Mr Clarke said sales had been hit by store refurbishments and "subdued" spending by customers. The fall in sales also reflects the deflationary effect of price cuts as Tesco invests £200m in an attempt to sharpen its pricing. Read on and comment » | Graham Ruddick | Wednesday, June 04, 2014

The middle classes will die out within 30 years because of rising property prices, which will rob today's children of their dreams, an economist has warned.
David Boyle, a government adviser and fellow of the New Economics Foundation think tank, said that youngsters can no longer expect the same level of affluence as their parents.
Speaking at the Hay Festival he warned that Britain will be left with a "tiny elite and a huge sprawling proletariat" who have no chance of "clawing their way out of a hand-to-mouth existence".
He predicted that the average house price will reach £1.2 million by 2045, putting a home beyond the range of most people as wages fail to keep up with huge increases.
Mr Boyle said that the traditional middle classes will need three or four jobs just to be able to pay soaring rents. People will no longer have the space or time to pursue cultural interested [sic]. » | Sarah Knapton, Science Correspondent | Wednesday, May 26, 2014
