‘Ex­pec­ta­tions greater’

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - PUZZLES -

CON­SUMER con­fi­dence re­bounded this month amid im­proved ex­pec­ta­tions for per­sonal fi­nances and the gen­eral economy, fig­ures show.

The long-run­ning GfK Con­sumer Con­fi­dence In­dex rose two points to mi­nus 10 in Au­gust after July’s fall to match last year’s post-Brexit low.

All five mea­sures of the in­dex — in­clud­ing ex­pec­ta­tions for per­sonal fi­nances, the gen­eral eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion and big-ticket spend­ing — recorded an in­crease.
