Article Preview: The British economy is still in a volatile position, with Brexit yet to be concluded and new political uncertainty due to a Tory leadership election. Despite this economic uncertainty, an influential business group is predicting that the economy will grow at a modest pace in the future. Growth during the first half of the year was especially volatile. Manufacturers were stockpiling ahead of the earlier, now delayed, Brexit deadline. A surge in gold bullion pushed up imports growth too. Despite this first half volatility, the CBI is forecasting GDP growth of 1.4% in 2019 and then 1.5% next year.
