United Kingdom from the Author: International Monetary Fund. This Selected Issues paper examines national accounts revisions and the economic cycle for the United Kingdom. The paper concludes that upward revisions to GDP data are positively correlated with economic activity, in particular, with growth in its domestic component. The paper suggests that although revisions may have become smaller in recent years, the procyclical bias in the data revision has not been eliminated. The regression model employed also suggests that GDP growth in 1996—currently estimated at 2.4 percent—could be as much as a 0.6 percentage point higher than that estimate.

United Kingdom Selected Issues from the Author: International Monetary Fund. The Selected Issues paper examines the dynamics of the inflation process in the United Kingdom, particularly the influence of external shocks. The paper provides a brief summary of existing empirical work. It presents the expectations-augmented Phillips curve model used in the analysis. The basic conclusion is that low inflation in recent years can be explained reasonably well by a combination of increased competitive pressures. The paper also presents some estimates of the degree of possible overvaluation in housing prices and outlines the links between housing prices and the macroeconomy.

United Kingdom from the Author: International Monetary Fund. European Department. This paper aims to provide European Union (EU), while recognizing that the choice of whether to remain in the EU is for U.K. voters to make and that their decisions will reflect both economic and noneconomic factors. The question of EU membership is both a political and an economic issue, and the referendum has sparked a wide-ranging debate on the United Kingdom's role in the EU. Given the range of plausible alternative arrangements with the EU, the number of channels by which countries could be affected and the range of possible effects on the United Kingdom and other economies are broad.
