BoE's Carney says UK economy not close to overheating
Democrats clock all-nighter with climate talk
By David Milliken and Andy Bruce LONDON (Reuters) - Bank of England Governor Mark Carney signalled he was not concerned that Britain's economy was close to overheating, despite a strong recovery since last year, putting himself in the dovish camp among policymakers. Speaking to lawmakers on Tuesday, Carney said the amount of spare capacity in the economy was probably slightly more than 1.5 percent of gross domestic product, suggesting the BoE can hold off on raising interest rates for longer. Carney also said Britain's natural rate of unemployment could be less than the Bank has estimated, meaning the labour market can strengthen further without pushing up inflation.
Bank of England's Carney, other policymakers speak in parliament
WASHINGTON (AP) â€” Democratic senators clocked an all-nighter, working in shifts into Tuesday morning to warn of the devastation from climate change and the danger of inaction.
Bank of England Governor Mark Carney and other top policymakers from the central bank are speaking in Britain's parliament. Below are highlights from their comments in a hearing of the Treasury Committee in the House of Commons. PAUL FISHER, BOE'S EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR FOR MARKETS (During discussion about how QE might be of interest to historians in future): SHOULD MPC KEEP RECORDINGS OF MPC MEETINGS? I think it would potentially change the nature of the debate away from where it is now." DAVID MILES, MEMBER OF BOE MONETARY POLICY COMMITTEE WAGE SETTLEMENTS "I think we're getting to the point at which average wage settlements are moving above the rate of inflation." GOVERNOR MARK CARNEY: WAGE GROWTH "In the absence of a pick-up in productivity growth, ultimately associated with investment, we are not going to see the uptick in real wages that will lead to a sustained period of above-trend growth." COULD UK ELECTIONS NEXT YEAR DELAY HIS DECISION TO ADJUST RATES UNTIL AFTER THE VOTE?
