Yesterday the European Commission published the autumn 2015 economic forecast. According to the forecast, the Dutch economy will grow at an annual rate of 2% this year. That is an increase compared with the EC’s forecast of 1.6% in May 2015. Domestic demand is strengthening as a result
of rising nominal income and low inflation.

Yesterday, the Bank of England’s (BoE) Monetary Policy Committee kept the benchmark rate at 0.5%. In an interview with Bloomberg, Mark Carney, the governor of the BoE, said that Britons should be ready for a rate increase in 2016. It would be the first increase in more than eight years.
