The figures mark a calendar year of consecutive growth in the UK.Further good news came in the details, which “look more sustainable than in prior quarters” according to Andrew Goodwin, senior economist at the Ernst & Young ITEM Club.“There is greater balance and this gives the impression of durability, and much smaller reliance on stockbuilding,” he added.There was also less reliance on construction growth, which fell to four per cent, down from the unusually high second quarter rate of 9.5 per cent. GDP was boosted by a surprise improvement in net trade as exports grew faster than imports. However, there remain concerns for the economy’s prospects in the final quarter of the year, and into 2011.Growth in consumer spending remains weak, falling to 0.3 per cent. Falling incomes, government spending cuts and the impending rise in VAT will pinch consumers, say analysts.Combined with tight credit conditions and potential knock-on effects of the crisis in Ireland, GDP “looks set to slow further in the fourth quarter, possibly down to around 0.4 per cent” according to Chris Williamson, chief economist at Markit. Most analysts expect per quarter growth between 0.3 per cent and 0.5 per cent for next year.The economy is in a robust state, but there is no room for complacency, said David Kern, chief economist at the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC). “The government must focus all its efforts on enabling the private sector to make 2011 a year for growth,” he said. “Obstacles that hamper businesses in their efforts to create jobs, invest and export must be removed.”The ONS will report on fourth quarter growth on 25 January next year.

The paper had printed an article headed “Sadarak customs and the millions” on 30 August, reporting a $7 million annual petrol smuggling racket.

Proponents state that mortgages became too hard to get post-2008, and unconventional loans, such as non-QM loans, could open the housing market to sound borrowers who had been shut out of it. “There are some weakening standards and weakening practices,” said Eric Kaplan, Director of the Housing Finance Program at the Milken Institute on Wall Street Journal. “It doesn’t rise to the same level yet, to my knowledge, of some of the things taking place just prior to the crisis. But we have to be vigilant.”Nonbank lenders are largely the ones extending non-traditional loans, but big banks such as JPMorgan Chase & Co., Credit Suisse Group AG and Citigroup Inc. have recently been arranging mortgage bonds backed by unconventional loans.Big banks’ mortgage arms are still avoiding riskier borrowers, leaving them to nonbank lenders. Despite the rise in unconventional loans, the market for unconventional home loans is still smallcompared with the rest of the mortgage market, as well as its precrisis past, when unconventional borrowing peaked at more than $1 trillion. “Still, the increase in unconventional loans shows that lenders are looking farther afield for customers,” WSJ’s Ben Eisen states. “As the U.S. economic expansion ages and home prices rise faster than incomes for most Americans, the mortgage industry is finding that there is a limited number of cream-of-the-crop borrowers.” About Author: Seth Welborn  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Investment, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Rise of Unconventional Loans Home / Daily Dose / The Rise of Unconventional Loans Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save Subscribelast_img read more
