British economy hits zero inflation

British economy hits zero inflation

After the recent signals by the Bank of England, UKs central to keep interest low , the economy has responded with stagnated prices for the second month. The restaurants and hotels have rescued the Island nation from severe deflation. The Office for National Statistics based in London informed on Tuesday that inflation has remained zero. The Bloomberg News Survey has estimated the similar outputs according to its median estimate.

The key interest rates in the United Kingdoms are at the all time low of record low 0.5 percent for more than six years. The Bank of England will have lesser pressure to raise the interest rates as the economy is going through the phase of weak pricing. The governor Mark Carney has projected rise in the inflation by the end of this year and this will trigger the increase in the key interest rate. Any instance of deflation will be temporary in nature.

Economist Ross Walker from the Royal Bank of Scotland Group had already expected the zero inflation rate in the country. The macroeconomic significance of this drop is almost none but it has a symbolic importance, according to him.

The negative drop has worried market pundits though. The pound dropped against the dollar as it traded $1.4635 as of 9:31 a.m. London time. Retail inflation as come down to 0.9 percent, lowest rate since the November of 2009. The core inflation rate, calculated by excluding alcohol,food, energy and tobacco has touched the mark of 1 percent, lowest since 2006.
