LONDON (Reuters) – Financial markets’ expectations of a rise in Bank of England interest rates over the coming year reflect a stronger economic outlook than during the depths of the COVID-19 pandemic, BoE policymaker Jonathan Haskel said on Tuesday.
“The prospective rise in Bank Rate from its emergency level – whenever that comes – is not a bug, but a feature. It reflects the success of fiscal, health and science policy in dealing with worst economic shock in 100 years,” Haskel said.
