OECD Joins the UK Double Dip Recession Forecast Club

Economics / Double Dip Recession Jun 30, 2009 - 03:54 AM GMT

Economics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past 2 weeks many 'recognised' forecasting organisations have been issuing reports and releases that point to Britain targeting a double dip recession to be triggered by deep public sector spending cuts following the next election. The latest of which to join the club is the OECD which stated that Britain remained in deep recession and that the recovery is likely to be slow and be accompanied by rising unemployment.


"A significant risk is therefore that the current stimulus will lead only to a temporary pick-up in growth, followed by protracted stagnation."

My own analysis of February 2009 forecast that the UK should hit bottom by the third quarter with a strong economic recovery into mid 2010 to be followed by a high risk of a double dip recession due to the growing and mostly unrecognised at the time debt burden that would need to be dealt with following the 2010 General Election. Subsequent data and analysis has increasingly reinforced the outlook for a double dip UK recession and especially following late April's UK Budget revisions to the actual levels of government borrowing and budget deficit by the Chancellor, Alistair Darling that proceeded to rip to shreds the preceding consensus on the projected budget deficit as illustrated by the graph below.

Britains Great Depression 2008 to 2013

The actual outlook and forecast for the UK economy remains for a strong economic recovery into 2010, which will be followed by a severe second recession to rival that of the current recession in terms of GDP contraction of between 5% and 6% and which therefore implies a far worse outcome than the double dip recession that has in recent weeks is beginning to become the consensus expectation, however, which I first voiced in February 2009. Therefore for the Market Oracle readership to continue to remain 6 to 12 months ahead of the mainstream media and forecasting organisations, then a more correct term to now be utilised should be " Britains Great Depression of 2008 to 2013", that increasingly looks set to engulf the debt fueled economic recovery of 2010.

The OECD Six Months Behind the Curve?

Hi

Quantitative easing i.e. printing money to buy assets makes currencies far more volatile as they are all in a race towards zero, competitive inflation.

Yes I will do a dollar update soon, but the trend just masks the larger probable outcome after current deflation which is for much higher inflation in the UK and US and probably elswhere too, regardless of what happens to the currencies in relative terms.
