U.K. wages are growing at their fastest pace in almost a decade, suggesting the economy is continuing to operate with little slack. Average earnings excluding bonuses rose 3.1 percent in the three months through August, the most since January 2009, the Office for National Statistics said Tuesday. Unemployment held at a 43-year low of 4 percent. While wage growth remains below its pre-crisis average, muted productivity means that even a modest pickup could fuel inflation as companies raise prices to protect their margins. Bank of England officials raised interest rates in August, though...

Monday, 15 October 2018 19:45 WIB | Retail Sales Ekonomi AS

U.S. retail sales rose less than forecast in September, as a broad-based increase was overshadowed by a drop in restaurant receipts that may reflect the impact of Hurricane Florence.

So- called retail control-group sales -- which are used to calculate gross domestic product and exclude food services, auto dealers, building-materials stores and gasoline stations -- climbed 0.5 percent, slightly...

Thursday, 11 October 2018 19:52 WIB | Ekonomi AS CPI Amerika

The higher cost of renting and owning a home nudged consumer prices higher in September, but inflation more broadly eased again after a recent runup.

Wednesday, 10 October 2018 15:46 WIB | Ekonomi inggris

The U.K. economy appears to be on course for its best calendar quarter in almost two years, despite a weaker-than-expected performance in August. Gross domestic product grew 0.7 percent in the three months through August, the Office for National Statistics said Wednesday. In August alone, output was unchanged. Economists had predicted growth of 0.1 percent. However, a similar performance in September would leave growth over the third quarter at 0.6 percent, up from 0.4 percent in the second and the most since the end of 2016. The figures help to explain why the Bank of England raised...
