National economic review (Sep)

The British Chambers of Commerce has published its monthly economic review for September.

The review is useful for looking at growth, investment and trade balance figures or predictions.

Headlines are as follows:

  • UK economic growth in Q2 unrevised, as the trade deficit narrows and investment rises.
  • UK unemployment rises again, but earnings continue to outstrip inflation.
  • US growth is revised up sharply, but China weighing heavily on the global outlook.

Full report (it’s only four pages!) is here.
