In terms of the relative likelihood
of those 4.5 hypotheses I have
racked them and what, in my view, is
descending likelihood of truth. As
we go through this year and we get
more information sought by our next
forecast with more quarters of
observation, if productivity growth
were to remain strong, than that
starts making you think, maybe
something real has happened. - sort
your rank those hypotheses in
descending order of probability.
I was going to ask a
question about the difference
between your forecast and that of
the Bank of England but I will take
the hypothesis and explain -- that
is explained by the descending
order. So miss measurement, that the
something the professor has given
evidence to and that is relatively,
going back two years,, that was
higher up your interest and higher
up in your thinking. You spoke,
sampling error. Could you just say
even for bit about where in the
future you think that might go.
That is where we leave our live
coverage from the select committee
rooms. You can continue watching
coverage online, on our website.
