The Outlook For 2012: A Make or Break Year
25 January 2012
Meeting Time: 08.00 - 10.30
This year we opened our programme by welcoming David Smith, Economics Editor of the Sunday Times who reviewed the economic prospects for 2012.
Can Europe and America shake off their deep problems and stage a decent recovery? How will the crisis in the Euro zone be resolved? And can Britain's economy cope with George Osborne's cuts and uncomfortably high inflation, and emerge stronger?
2012 will be a pivotal year for growth, jobs, the global economy, the coalition's ability to survive, and the Bank of England's credibility.
This was a great opportunity for members to take stock of the current economic climate and possible developments during 2012.
