LONDON: Britain’s growth potential has fallen behind every large economy except Mexico due to collapsing productivity and severe labour market shortages, according to former Bank of England rate-setter Michael Saunders. Potential output, a mixture of productivity and workforce growth, is a measure of how fast an economy can expand before generating inflation. “Low potential growth implies low growth in real living standards,” Saunders wrote in a note. Britain was “roughly in the middle of the pack” of the 43 OECD nations for potential growth between 2010 and 2019, Saunders said. “Unless offset by persistently high inward migration, adverse demographics driven by population ageing are likely to further limit workforce growth in the coming years,” he said.

KUCHING (Dec 3): Petra Jaya Member of Parliament Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof created history as the first Malaysian from Sarawak, one of the Borneo states in Malaysia, ever appointed as deputy prime minister. For the late Yusof, it was a struggle between life and death for the nation but for Fadillah the struggle is definitely more than that. By now, Fadillah’s popularity was not just limited to Petra Jaya. Following his success in retaining his Petra Jaya seat in GE13, Fadillah was promoted to full minister to helm the Works Ministry in 2013. With this new trust placed on him by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who also named him Plantations and Commodities Minister, Fadillah is certainly able to uphold that responsibility as he has shown over the years.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- U.S. households increased spending in October from the previous month, government figures released on Thursday showed. Personal spending in October grew 0.8 percent from September, according to data released by the U.S. Commerce Department. The data suggests that interest rate hikes by the U.S. Federal Reserve have not prevented consumers from spending, even if they must dig into their savings. Spending in October was mainly driven by purchases of new autos, as well as spending on housing and food items. "Households are heading into the holiday season in fairly good shape," said Ryan Sweet, chief U.S. economist at Oxford Economics, as quoted in Investing.com and published in Yahoo Finance.
