What did the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement tell us about the state of the economy? And what did it mean for business? In a Barclays Client Briefing Call, three high profile business and media personalities shared their impressions. They felt the Chancellor had done as well as circumstances allowed, and welcomed his measures to support business. But the government now had to deliver, they insisted. The economic forecasts remain daunting, and one panel member feared for Britain’s credit rating. We report on what was said on the conference call and some of the questions raised by clients in the Q&A that followed.
