UK Inflation CPI Remains Steady at 1.8%

Economics / Inflation Oct 16, 2007 - 08:41 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Economics UK inflation for September as measured by the governments preferred measure the Consumer Price Index remained steady at 1.8%. The more widely recognised measure of inflation RPI, fell to 3.9%.


The RPI index is applied to increases state benefits such as pensions and child benefit, however a lesser known ROSSI Index (excluding housing costs) is applied to job seekers allowance and housing benefit which came in at a much lower 2.3%.

Many economists have taken the latest figures as further evidence that a cut in UK interest rates is just around the corner,possibly at the November MPC meeting. However the Market Oracle forecast as of 22nd August 07 is for the first cut in UK interest rates to occur in January 2007, with a downtrend targeting 5% by September 2007. This expectation is in anticipation of sharply lower growth during 2008 due to a housing market bust. The Market Oracle forecast is for growth of 1.4% for 2008, as against the governments expectations of 2.5%.
