Self-employment is changing the face of the labour market.
Self-employment is changing the face of the labour market. Figure released today by the Office for National Statistics found that unemployment in the UK fell slightly to 1.6 million in the three months to October, meaning that the rate of unemployment held steady at 4.8% in the period, remaining at an 11-year low. The trend for more people becoming self-employmed has also continued. The Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed says the number of people classed as self-employed has increased by 129,000 to 4.75 million in the three months to November. To discuss the figures, and the growth of self-employment, Simon Rose was joined on the line by Lorence Nye, an economic adviser at IPSE.

Why does the UK have the highest level of household spending in Europe?
Many consumer-facing businesses will be hoping for a bumper festive season as the annual spending frenzy builds towards Christmas Day and the Boxing Day sales. The UK has the highest level of household spending in Europe, with an annual expenditure of £50,000. This compares to £41,000 in Ireland and £35,000 in France. And, most importantly for retailers, discretionary spending - money spent on non-essentials - is also the highest in Europe. Simon was joined by Barret Kupelain, senior economist at PwC.

What is driving the increase in inflation?
Inflation has hit its highest level for more than 2 years, driven by a sharp rise in the cost of clothes. The latest monthly figures from the Office for National Statistics show that the main measure of inflation, the consumer prices index, hit 1.2% in November, up from 0.9% in October. The retail prices index, which includes the cost of housing, rose to 2.2% in November, up from 2% the previous month. Simon spoke to Pete Comley, inflation expert and author of Inflation Matters.
