Zero Inflation? Instant Gratification To Stop UK Turning Japanese


JapanFlag

Money&Co.'s CEO, Nicola Horlick, says in the Huffington Post that low inflation is "something to be welcomed generally, but when it hits zero, there is always the risk that a country could be heading for a Japanese-style period of no growth and permanently low prices."

However, she adds, the UK is very different from Japan. The British consumer "is not accustomed to waiting to spend. There is a culture of going for instant gratification, and consumer expenditure has been one of the major drivers of the economy over the last thirty-five years, leading to a large service element to the economy. I find it unlikely that patterns of spending will suddenly change."

The conclusion? In the UK's case, zero inflation is something to be celebrated. And in the context of zero inflation, the average gross yield achieved so far by Money&Co. lenders – more than 8.8 per cent – is also something to be rejoice in.
