South West Agency SUMMARY Growth outlook: a pick-up in 2012 H2, driven by better prospects for consumption as inflation comes down and real incomes stop falling Factors such as the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics will disrupt the pattern of demand. Uncertainties remain regarding the household savings rate Increased uncertainty is holding back investment, but a pick-up in consumption should have ‘accelerator’ effects. Other components of demand – Government, net trade, stock building -- will be negative or flat at best. Inflation has begun its long-promised fall as temporary factors unwind. The risk that inflation will fall below target with continuing slack in the economy is being mitigated by the increase in QE.
