What's in issue five of "INTEREST"?

We highlight that:

  • ONS inflation figures for December, announced on 17 January, showed inflation up slightly to 4.00%.
  • Observers have been arguing that, as inflation has dropped over the past year, interest rates should drop in line. This notion ignores the point that even with the current higher rates, most savings accounts are still producing a negative return after inflation and tax.
  • Interest rates are not historically high. 5.25% is well under the average base rate for the past 50 years at 6.37%.
  • Although rate setting may not be an exact science, there are certain things that we cannot argue about. Negative returns on savings are indefensible.”
  • If instead of dropping the base rate from 0.25% to 0.10% in March 2020, it was increased to say 1.75% or 2% (or even just left it where it was), would we have had the double-digit inflation we have just seen?
