Are there really any green shoots in the UK economy?

One of the new phrases which has come to light over the last few months is "green shoots" which has been used on numerous occasions to try and instil some confidence into the UK economy and UK consumers. The problem is that there have been so many false dawns that consumers, investors and economists alike are more sceptical each time hopes are raised and then dashed.

We have seen numerous government ministers, well-known political figures and various business leaders in the UK calling the first signs of these green shoots only to find they have withered away and died. As we have mentioned on numerous occasions, there is a consensus opinion that the rate of slowdown in UK economy has itself start to stabilise with some suggestion that certain pockets of the economy are in fact forming a base for future growth.

As ever, the key to a potential recovery in the UK economy in the short to medium term is liquidity and business levels in the UK money market. Without finance many businesses will struggle, expansion will be impossible, property buyers will be forced on to the sidelines and there will be no investment into the economy. Once the UK money market starts to turn then we may see the eventual appearance of these magical "green shoots".
