BOE raises rates by a half-point as push begins for bigger moves - The Straits Times

Quick Summary:

September 22, 2022 9:26 PM - BRITAIN - The Bank of England (BOE) delivered a second consecutive half-point interest-rate hike in its battle to bring down inflation, as three officials pushed for the institution to join its global peers in moving at an even quicker pace.

The BOE's task of calibrating policy has been made harder by huge fiscal expansion announced by new Prime Minister Truss.

Officials also projected a technical recession in the second and third quarters of 2022, as the economy takes a hit from the extra bank holiday for the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
