LSE Business Review blog: Autumn Statement does little to dampen fears for the economic health of the UK

Brexit and the uncertainties surrounding it present an unprecedented challenge, writes Anna Valero

In his first Autumn Statement (and last – since he has decided to abolish them in favour of an annual November budget), the Chancellor presented the key forecasts from the Office for Budet Responsibility’s economic and fiscal outlook, the first since the June referendum. While there is still major uncertainty around the likely form of Brexit, the consensus is that it will inflict damage on the economy. The Chancellor highlights the UK’s weak productivity performance and outlines some policies to address it. However, given the scale of the challenge, now heightened by Brexit, the current package of government policies does little to dampen fears for the economic health of the UK.
