On Thursday, the Bank of England will meet to decide on an interest rate cut. It’s widely expected by economic officials that the UK’s central bank will cut rates 25 basis points, from .50% to .25%. What will this mean for a country already reeling from the economic crunch post Brexit?

man hitting a piggy bank with a hammerA rate decrease will prove to mark a historic low. According to International Business Times:

The BoE has kept interest rates at a historic low for the last seven years and the expected cut would bring the benchmark into uncharted territory. When Britain’s central bank cut the benchmark to 0.5% in 2009, the lowest since the BoE was founded in 1694, it described the figure as an ‘emergency rate’ and for the past seven years savers, institutions, fund managers, and economists have believed a rate rise was just around the corner.”

Few anticipate a rate lowering to zero or even negative levels; however, it’s still not out of the question. Other central banks, including Danmarks Nationalbank, the European Central Bank, Sveriges Riksbank, the Swiss National Bank, and Bank of Japan, have all cut rates to or below zero over the last few years.
