UK economic growth 2018 started more slowly than end of 2017. The UK economy news is normally weaker at the beginning of the calendar year. Most of the UKs economic growth comes as the calendar year progresses.
Governor of the Bank of England Mr Carney
Mr Mark Carney the head of the Bank of England says poor UK economic activity at the beginning of the calendar year 2018 was due to the weather and not UK economic climate.
In addition Mr Carney reports that all slack in the UK economy has been taken up and this is likely to push up UK prices and UK inflation.
With very high levels of employment low levels of unemployment and a million plus job vacancies unfilled it is more likely that wages will increase faster. UK employers will need to pay more to attract candidates and to keep existing staff.
Mr Carney paints a rosier future for the UK economy in 2018 with downside risks including global international trade war. UK interest rates more likely to rise later this year and this should boost value of the UK pound.

The Bigger Risk To Financial Services Jobs Is Automation Or Robots Not Brexit
Ignore the threat to financial services industry jobs of Brexit. You should be much more worried about the threat of robots. Job automation is the biggest finance sector threat and opportunity.
Job Automation Risk To Your Financial Sector Job
No doubt. Financial services industry is very important to the UK economy. If financial services jobs were lost other sectors would be affected. Fewer services jobs needed to service those in financial services jobs!
Many jobs in financial services are high paid jobs. Top British bankers are paid much more than elsewhere. Resistance to moving to Germany is as much about personal reasons. The UK economy may or may not suffer after Brexit. Bankers will suffer.
However people in financial services are facing automation existential threat. Never mind moving to Germany your job is going full stop!
FinTech company jobs will be prevalent. Bankers less so. Most financial services jobs can be done faster cheaper better. Robots will be
more reliable and
after a few years significantly cheaper
How long do you think the C Suite will keep your job. If job automation is better for bonuses your job is toast!
Existing financial services jobs are like UK miners jobs. The buildings will remain but the people in them will be different. Cyber security and fintech risk managers will be plentiful.
Banks insurers and funds will need cyber experts. They will stop external and internal threats to money.
Fintech risk managers will direct risk appetite and risk tolerance
C suite virtual bankers insurers fund managers will be wealthier
Wealthier investors but more at risk of systemic industry collapse
Software developers will frequent the bars and restaurants. Existing financial services people will be there waiting on tables!
Most existing financial services jobs will be lost to job automation. Do not doubt this for a second!
However it is not all doom and gloom. The key to survive is to move into the new financial services sector jobs. Some new financial services jobs do not exist right now! You must change your skills set to take advantage and survive.
Its not just the top bankers that need worry. Indeed they are the ones most likely to easily morph. Financial services jobs most at risk
Financial and investment advice
Any financial services sector job your current phone app replaces!
Consumers have a choice to use financial services apps and websites. In future the consumer will have no choice. Financial services consumers will not speak to people. People will be gone replaced by job automation. The robots will have taken over the financial services world!
There is no point in complaining. No point arguing with us. Better spending your time reskilling instead. Stop worrying about Brexit. Start retraining to overcome threat of job automation. Learn tech skills not German!

Next Financial Crisis Will Come Cause Have Not Learnt Lesson From 2008 Financial Crisis
Overproduction of steel and steel products is building pressure for global trade wars between USAChinaEU and the rest of the world.
Excess steel capacity should be dealt with in a global forum for the problem to avoid an escalation of trade disputes according to OECD following USAs plans to introduce import tariffs on steel.
Leaders of G20 advanced economic countries set up the Global Forum on Steel Excess Capacity in September 2016 to deal with the problem and charged the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD to facilitate its work.
Biggest Most Developed Countries Including G20 Unemployment Back To Pre-Financial Crisis Levels
Joblessness across 35 OECD countries fell to 5.6 percent in October 2017 down from a peak of 8.5 percent in 2010.
Coordinated enterprise risk management actions
The network will work on specific projects in a coordinated way to aggregate business assets and share benefit outcomes.
Understanding global risks is important for all business leaders. Identifying and assessing the global risks in 2018 is not a once a year task.
Existing risks will morph into bigger risks to your business
Small smaller risks will combine to create an aggregate risk that could even threaten the survival of your business.
Emerging risks not obvious at the time of the report, could subside and just be accepted or they could gather momentum and threaten business objectives.
In addition the risks that could threaten some businesses could present an opportunity for your business to grow faster but if you miss the start of the opportunity you could miss the boat entirely or fail to maximise the potential rewards from the opportunity.
Unlike other less dynamic reporting systems companies or entitys BusinessRiskTV will provide you with regular risk reports to help you manage enterprise risks more proactively to mitigate threats to your business better and seize new business development opportunities earlier.
In short, BusinessRiskTV is less about looking back and offering expert risk reports with hindsight and more about looking forward with more dynamic forecasts backed up with practical risk management solutions for both the upside and downside aspects to global risks as it affects your business wherever you are in the world.

25th June 2020 International Monetary Fund IMF Says Global Economy To Shrink Nearly 5 Percent In 2020
The IMF is now predicting a deeper global recession caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Even if the spread of the virus reduces which it is not consumers will be too frightened to spend at the same level as prepandemic. This will hit the the global economy hard.
8th June 2020 World Bank Forecasting COVID-19 Pandemic To Shrink Global GDP By 5.2 Percent In 2020
The forecast if it is right will be worst global economic contraction since World War II. The World Bank is forecasting global economic growth of 4.2 percent in 2021.
26th May 2020 The Second Wave Is Often The Biggest Killer
Going back centuries we can see that it is often the second wave of infections that kill more people than the first hit of the pandemic. While some countries are getting to grips with the Covid19 pandemic others have yet to feel the full force of the new deadly virus.
The game changer will be a vaccine but without that most countries will experience second third or more waves of Covid19. How big these waves impact will depend on learning the lessons from the first wave and not repeating the same or similar mistakes.
A large second wave of the virus with run away exponential spreading that forces reinforcement of social and economic lockdown would be catastrophic. The reproduction rate in countries where the virus is under control must be kept below 1. Countries which do not have the virus under control need to be quarantined to prevent them spreading the virus back into controlled country environments.
Even without a second wave of deaths the first wave tsunami economic wave may hurt localised areas whole continents and the world:
Some countries will not be able to pay their debts built up prior to pandemic or during the pandemic.
The eurozone and wider European union could implode from within. Alternatively some weaker countries may be forced to leave for the sake of survival of the rest as a homogeneous economic unit.
Systemic banking collapse could yet occur. ItalianIndian and Chinese banks are particularly weak. However unknown weaknesses in other national banking systems could be the first domino to fall.
Corporate entities soaked in debt may have to close creating bad debt others may struggle to cope with.
Commercial and private valuations will in the short term be overpriced. Investments which have such assets are also overpriced. If there is not a V-shaped recovery in the economy then in the medium term this could create an unstable finance sector that could be a lot more damaging than lost revenue for a few months.
The political fundamentals could change when people react to the dawning that not only have thousands of people died but their financial futures are ruined for decades or perhaps lifetimes. RussiaBrazil and India could presently be smoldering in embers of political change which could affect oil prices and the global economy.
Most of all debt was a problem for many countries prior to pandemic. With the pandemic debt has been posted as the saviour. It could become a bigger killer than the virus.
14th April 2020 International Monetary Fund IMF Reports The Global Economy Shrinking 3 Percent Due To The Coronavirus Pandemic
The IMF had forecast a growth of 3.5 percent for the the global economy pre pandemic. This means the IMF is forecasting a 6.5 percent swing from growth to global recession.
The financial crisis in 2009 only saw a global recession of 0.1 percent. This economic and financial crisis is 30 times worse than 2009 financial crisis. Next year the IMF expects a massive bounce back to global economic growth. Not all businesses will survive to see it.
23rd March 2020 Global Recession Due To Coronavirus COVID19 Pandemic Is Guaranteed
The only uncertainty is whether the global economy will deteriorate so much that a long term global economic depression happens.
20th January 2020 International Monetary Fund IMF Cuts Global Growth Forecasts 2020 and 2021
The IMF is now forecasting global growth of 3.3 percent in 2020 and 3.4 percent in 2021. Risks to the global economy include:
High levels of inequality within countries and between countries
The rapid development of 4th industrial revolution technology threatening unemployment rises
High geopolitical risks and trade wars
Financial meltdown due to very high levels of debt
The IMF can see signs that some risks are stabilising but still significant threat to global growth.
9th January 2020 Now The Iran USA Immediate Threat Of War Is Dissipating The Global Economic Threat Returns To International Trade Wars
The signs are that both USA and Iran can agree to disagree again within killing thousands of people. The biggest threat to the global economy is the trade wars around the world particularly USA China trade war. Even this threat appears to be unwinding in its severity especially if they can do a partial deal soon.
If America and China can do a trade deal sign it and implement it the global economy can expand aggressively. It will be like the cork in a bottle of champagne.
Until then and in addition to such a trade deal governments around the world need to invest heavily in infrastructure to support the global economy and prepare for rapid expansion 2021 onwards.
20th December 2019 Global Equity Funds and UK Equity Funds Win Billions Of Pounds Of New Extra Investment Money
Bank of America Global has reported that new money has flooded into investments following the USA China trade agreement. Equity funds in the UK have seen billions of pounds invested since the election of the most powerful UK government in decades.
Brexit uncertainty in terms of whether the UK will leave the European Union EU has been removed. The UK will leave the EU but how remains uncertainty. The UK will leave at the end of January 2020. The UK will transition during the rest of 2020 and either leave with a free trade agreement or leave with no trade deal agreed.
UK equity funds have also been pumped up with billions of pounds of new money as investors feel more reassured about the UKs direction of travel.
The USA economy is looking healthier not just with a trade agreement with China but also by the USAs ability to create more jobs and its super low unemployment rate.
21st November 2019 Global Economy Weakest Since Financial Crisis In 2008 According To OECD
The global economy is forecast to grow by a decade low of just 2.9 percent in 2019 and 2020 according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD in its Economic Outlook.
The OECD is also forecasting that this weakness in the global economy is likely to continue beyond 2020 for foreseeable future in a large part due to the trade war between China and USA. In addition the OECD suggests that these countries will also suffer economic slowdown due to their own trade war.
The OECD predicts the European Union EU will continue to suffer poor economic growth levels and that its own Quantitative Easing QE measures will not save it. Each country in the EU needs to invest significantly in infrastructure and other areas of economy to spur faster growth.
The OECD projects UK growth of 1.2 percent in 2019 and 1.0 percent in 2020.
18th October 2019 Weakest Global Economy Since Financial Crisis 2008
International Monetary Fund IMF says global economy weakest since the start of the last financial crisis.
However the global economy is in a worse place now than the start of the last financial crisis. Central banks around the world back in 2008 2009 could dramatically cut interest rates to support businesses in significant debt and encourage new investment. There is very little room or no room for central banks around the world to cut interest rates.
In short the global economy is in a very high risk zone with few tools to protect itself. One way the global economy can navigate further distress is to resolve and settle all global trade wars and trade more freely.
15th October 2019 International Monetary Fund IMF Says Global Growth Slipping and Could Get Much Worse If Trade Wars Continue
The trade war between USA and China will cut global economic growth in 2019. It is forecast by IMF to be slowest since financial crisis in 2008.
Latest IMF World Economic Outlook projections for 2019 GDP growth reduced to 3.0 percent down from 3.2 percent in July forecast.
If the international trade disputes continue or worsen then there could be a spiral into a global recession as central banks around the world have fewer tools to protect their economies. Interest rates have already been slashed and quantitative easing or other forms of cheap money are already being deployed.
9th October 2019 Asia and Africa Are The Business Growth Zones To Focus On
Even though China is in middle of trade war with USA the rest of Asia is expanding rapidly. Growth in Asia is not as fast but compared to Europe many countries in Asia are growing around 5 times as fast with the exception of Hong Kong.
Several African countries are still growing extremely fast despite the global economic slowdown. Those that are not have massive growth potential over the next decades.
There is a global economic slowdown. A global recession is perhaps on its way if the trade wars continue. However there are parts of the world that remain in massive growth phase. Many are exporters but that does not mean its impossible to export to Asia and Africa. The low currency in the UK creates a massive opportunity for quality goods and services to be sold in Asia and Africa.
1st October 2019 Fear Of Lack Of Government Fiscal Control Is Biggest Risk Facing Businesses Around the World
The risk of a fiscal crisis is the biggest threat to business globally according to a survey from World Economic Forum.
However the biggest risk everyone can agree on is fiscal risk for governments overextending themselves which will eventually snap back to punish future generations.
Governments around the world are being partially protection by low interest rates and quantitative easing QE or cheap fake money.
As the UK cheers the end of austerity with both key political partys pledging to spend spend spend we should maybe consider the effects of UK governments excessively borrowing to spend.
Many economists are comfortable with borrowing to invest in infrastructure improvements especially when money is so cheap right now. This creates wealth in future that can payoff previous borrowing.
However borrowing more to cover in effect just daily government expenditure is very dangerous as eventually you will not be able to borrow still have same expenditure but will have a massive outstanding debt hangover that needs paying off.
The UK and USA seem to think that they can run up huge borrowing bill now. Lets hope they are right. Businesses fear they could be wrong.
4th September 2019 Expert Analysis Of Global Economy Argues The Global Economy Is Contracting Rapidly

2nd January 2019 Slower Global Economic Growth In 2019
Global economic growth will slow if the hangover from 2018 continues in 2019.
Political risks on the downside threaten the fluidity of global trade which will slow economic growth. Trade tensions between USA and China and USA and Europe top the list of political risks in 2019.
Less money sloshing about in the global economy will slow global economic growth. Examples include the Eurozone closing the cash flow taps with the end of quantitative easing QE by European Central Bank ECB. In addition and perhaps more significantly the Federal Reserve in USA seem intent on continuing to increase interest rates in America which will make money a lot more expensive thus negatively impacting on economic growth in USA.
Businesses across the globe will find it harder to make a profit in 2019 and this will reduce sovereign state income from taxation and reduce corporate free money available for investment in future which will hit global economic growth.
In addition if political risks ease or reverse the global economy could actually receive a boost. For example there are indications that China is prepared to do a deal with USA. If this happens then 2019 could become a lot more positive.

Many economists are forecasting around the 4 percent mark for global economic growth in 2018. BusinessRiskTV forecasts this will underplay the global economic boom that is set to happen in 2018.
If a major global event occurs like World War 111 then growth will be slower but if World War 3 happens we will not care about economic forecasts any longer! Such geopolitical risk events aside we can look around the world and see great news unfolding:
America is feeding in huge corporate and personal tax cuts into its economy. When America grows so does the rest of the world. In addition, low unemployment and faster wage increases in USA will turbo-charge the USA economy in 2018.
Eurozone is experiencing is fastest growth period in around a decade and this will continue, but accelerate in 2018, as people find jobs and property values start to rise making people in the Eurozone feel wealthier. Manufacturing is returning to countries in Eurozone that may have once have forgotten how to make things.
Africa is a sleeping giant that will fail to get its act together in 2018 but will improve on recent economic performance.
Asia Pacific is set to expand faster with the likes of India in particular racing ahead. China will continue to find more and more people jobs in 2018 and will lift more people out of poverty further increasing demand for domestic and international consumption. Japan will finally put decades of deflation behind it and new technology will begin to overcome demographic time-bomb to the benefit of Japanese economy.
The Americas, and Brazil in particular, was once a fast growing area of the globe. South American expenditure will be healthier in 2018 and help develop continental and global growth faster than 2017.
The UK is constantly put down by people in the UK but the UK economy will continue to surprise most UK economists trying to subvert Brexit and grow faster than 2 percent in 2018. Low unemployment, faster wage growth due to skills shortages and rising housing prices will encourage UK consumers to spend more and manufacturing and services sectors will push UK growth faster supported by a return of the construction sector.
Middle Eastern countries will benefit from rising oil prices and rebuilding of some physically damaged countries.
