UK interest rate rise a sign of economic healing

This is an important interview with Andy Haldane, the Bank of England's Chief Economist.

Haldane argues that interest rates heading north once again should be seen as a good news story - and not just for savers! It represents a stage of the economic cycle and ten years on from the financial crisis, that policy-makers believe is the opportune moment for interest rates to starting heading towards 'normal' levels, even if that new normal has changed.
