The British economy suffered a sharp deterioration in performance from the middle of the year. The economy is now evidently in recession. The entry of sterling into the ERM at an overvalued central rate against the DM and the almost inevitable prospect of a Gulf war suggest the prospect of zero or negative growth in 1991.
