The August Markit figures are now out and they show, in general, a welcome rebound. That said, let's not get too carried away. We've written here before that no-one really knows what's going to happen as we move through the process of Brexit, however, to be fair, the initial signs so far have been encouraging in that we haven't seen the levels of doom that some prophesied. That said, there is a long way to go so let's not get complacent and, as REC's Chief Exec, Kevin Green, says in the press release that accompanies the Markit surveys, "the priority now is to shore up business confidence".
