Can the British government avert a financial crisis? | Business and Economy


From: Counting the Cost

The UK government has introduced tax cuts to kick-start the economy. The IMF warns the plan could stoke soaring inflation.

The British prime minister is betting big on a fiscal policy that includes the biggest tax cuts in the United Kingdom in half a century – funded by borrowing.

Liz Truss says the plan will kick-start the economy. But her critics say it is a reckless gamble. And the plans seem to have backfired already. The pound has fallen to record lows, and financial markets have gone into turmoil.

In rare public criticism of a leading global economy, the International Monetary Fund has warned the plan could increase inequality in the UK.

Elsewhere, Bollywood and Nollywood movies fight to stay in the spotlight.
