Sir John Gieve‘s expert analysis of PM Theresa May’s latest economic policies was quoted in The Telegraph this week:

As Mark Carney enters his first week as Governor of the Bank of England, the British Media have offered a range of opinions on the man and the challenges ahead of him.
Stephanie Flanders writing for the BBC discusses the challenges ahead but suggests he has the good fortune of taking on an economy apparently in upswing.
Harriet Dennys of the Independent is more cautious highlighting the large cost of BoE’s new governor that will doubtless add to the weight of expectation upon him.
In the FT, Robin Wigglesworth and Alice Ross give the view from the investment community as they prepare for incoming policy shifts.
The Guardian’s Aditya Chakrabortty strikes the most suspicious tone, highlighting his close links to the financial service sector and questioning if Rockstar Appointments should be the tone for such a central role.
