Dr Andrew Lilico spoke at the Heart of London's event 'An Economic Outlook for 2017: Global, UK and London Insights'. During the event Andrew advised that firms need to to adjust to higher growth, inflation and financing costs: “Global growth has become stronger in recent months – perhaps the strongest in around five years – and 2017 may be stronger still. But this stronger growth will go together with rising inflation and rising interest rates internationally, led by the Fed. Firms need to begin to adjust from the world of recent years of low growth, low inflation and low financing costs to one of higher growth, higher inflation and higher financing costs. Not every firm will make the cut.”
