CITY VIEWS: DO YOU AGREE THAT WE'RE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET ?

<strong>ANDY HEARN</strong> <strong></strong> BANNERMAN RENDELL<br />&ldquo;I don&rsquo;t think we are over the worst of it yet. There is still not a lot of public confidence. Unemployment continues to weigh on peoples&rsquo; minds and while there are still job cuts I don&rsquo;t think we can begin to say we&rsquo;re near a recovery.&rdquo; <br /><strong><br />CHARLES RAWLINS </strong>ACE INSURANCE<br />&ldquo;I think this public optimism is a blip. Considering how catastrophic it has been I think people are getting too carried away and clinging on to bits of good news. People want the economy to improve, so traders can push prices up again.&rdquo;<br /><br /><strong>DERREN LLEWELLYN</strong> <strong> </strong>M&amp;G INVESTMENTS<br />&ldquo;There is plenty more bad news to come, I think it&rsquo;s a bit of a false start. People are getting carried away and they are not looking at the actual economic problems. There&rsquo;s no way the economy will have a rapid recovery.&rdquo;<br /><br /><strong>SEBASTIAN MUKKADAN</strong> <strong> </strong>WILLIS<br />&ldquo;I believe the UK economy is still very fragile. There are still unemployment fears and concerns over inflation. While in other countries there&rsquo;s a concerted effort to find a solution, the UK has different parties with clashing remedies.&rdquo;<br />
