Derek’s Monday Night Live interview with Financial Commentator Justin Urquhart-Stewart about Jitters in the Financial Markets
Derek Arden talks to Financial commentator Justin Urquhart-Stewart about the markets, the pound and borrowing.
The timing is ideal with our UK mini-budget having taken place last Friday.
A controversial budget. Cutting taxes, paying towards people’s energy bills. All with borrowed money, increasing the UK’s interest costs of already £100bn a year.
This is all at a time when interest rates are rising to combat supply inflation.
I wonder if this is why the pound has sunk to a 40-year low against the US dollar.
We have so many questions to pose to Justin.
He won’t have all the answers, but he will have a very experienced view.
