UK already in recession and GDP to fall by 1.4% in 2023, Jeremy Hunt says

Jeremy Hunt declared that the UK is currently in a recession based on projections from the Office for Budget Responsibility. According to the watchdog, GDP will increase by 4.2% this year, then decline by 1.4% in 2023, before growing by 1.3%, 2.6%, and 2.7% during the next three years.

According to the report, inflation is expected to be 9.1% this year, 7.4% next year, and then suddenly drop off in the middle of the following year.
According to Chancellor Hunt, they affirm that their actions today will cause inflation to drop sharply starting in the middle of the following year. They determine that the UK is currently experiencing a recession, along with other nations.

It happened barely eight weeks after the catastrophic mini-Budget of former Prime Minister Liz Truss, which sparked economic chaos when the Chancellor unveiled the Autumn Statement.

Hunt made a commitment to confront the cost of living problem and rebuild our economy while outlining his plans for tax hikes and spending cuts in his speech.

Additionally, he declared two new budgetary guidelines, telling the Commons: The first is that by the fifth year of a rolling five-year term, the underlying debt must decrease as a percentage of GDP. The second is that borrowing by the public sector must be less than 3% of GDP throughout that time frame.

The Chancellor continued the approach they are announcing today complies with both regulations. The announcement today results in a consolidation of £55 billion and much-reduced inflation and borrowing rates. They plan to accomplish this in a balanced way by using fiscal policy to assist the economy in the short term when growth slows, and unemployment increases.

He said the OBR confirms “that because of our plans, the recession is shallower, and inflation is reduced”. He further adds, “Unemployment is also lower with about 70,000 jobs protected as a result of our decisions today”.
