The Chancellor's Budget 2013 will face intense scrutiny. There will be a lot of attention on whether or not the Budget measures will stimulate economic growth. Over the next few weeks, our experts will share their thoughts regarding what the Chancellor could do to boost confidence and stability, and ultimately help to grow the UK economy. What actions would you recommend that the Chancellor takes to help build business confidence?
Mike Jervis, Partner, wants to see the Chancellor provide some respite for the high street and encourage investment to improve options for debt-ridden companies.
Alex Henderson, Tax Partner, says the Chancellor is likely to keep a steady course, but could look for ways to boost confidence in UK business by helping smaller companies.
Andrew Sentance, our Senior Economic Adviser, says the Chancellor needs to make it possible for the private sector to drive growth in the future.
Budget speculation is in full swing. With just two years to go until the election the stakes are high and we are unlikely to see bold measures that could take time to bear fruit. We offer some light hearted odds on the runners and riders.
