Ökonomen erwartenrapiden Wirtschaftsboom für UK, gefolgt von Absturz in 2023

May 17, 2021 - Ökonomen erwarten, dass UK die wirtschaftliche Erholung in Europa mit dem schnellsten Wachstum in knapp 50 Jahren anführen wird, jedoch führen die Auswirkungen des Brexit und schwache Produktivität zum tiefen Absturz in 2023.

The United Kingdom will lead Europe's economic recovery with its fastest growth since 1973, before sliding to the bottom of the leader board in 2023, economists forecast.

Predictions for 2021 see UK growth to 6%, putting it ahead of Germany, France, Italy and Spain, thanks in the main to its rapid vaccine rollout – allowing lockdown restrictions to relax early.

Looking ahead further, however, analysts predict growth of just 1.7% for 2023, falling due to the long-term effects of Brexit and the country's lagging productivity – meaning it will fall behind its European peers.
