“Tuesday was a bad headline day. The IMF predicted the UK will be the only major economy to shrink this year. And grocery price inflation hit a record high. Nonetheless, the IMF’s pessimistic forecasts should be taken with a fistful of salt. Its track record is poor and some of its assumptions look out of date.
“We desperately need a comprehensive pro-growth strategy to tackle the issues holding us back, including a fall in the number of people seeking work, weak investment and high energy costs.”
