Carney’s second round with pro-Brexit lawmakers
The Bank of England governor will testify at 10 a.m. in London on Tuesday, alongside Deputy Governor Ben Broadbent and fellow officials Martin Weale and Gertjan Vlieghe. This is Carney’s second encounter with pro-Brexit lawmaker Jacob Rees-Mogg and a last one before referendum.
Carney was accused of acting politically and compromising the independence of the BOE during his last testimony. A heated exchange between Carney and pro-Brexit lawmaker won’t be surprising. Traders can expect Carney and Co. to warn about negative impact of Brexit and bank’s readiness to provide more stimulus if BRexit pushes UK into recession.
Note that so far, 280 economists have signed up to a letter opposing an exit.
