  • 2. Momentum Success in business and marketing is all about momentum, and right now our Economic Recovery Index is gathering momentum, reaching in November its highest level for the second month in a row. In recent months we have seen a gradual improvement in general sentiment about the economy – but in November we have seen a gradual improvement in sentiment about the consumer, including spending intentions. It’s still too early to call, but a gradual alignment of positive macro sentiment with positive micro behaviour could finally deliver a pick up in consumer and retail spending. Fingers crossed for a positive turn going into 2014. Economic Recovery Index 2
  • 3. The Emotional Recovery We have been reporting our monthly Economic Recovery Index since April 2009. We set out four years ago to assess the psychological impact of the recession and to chart our ‘emotional progress’ towards recovery alongside our ‘economic progress’. This report summarises our Economic Recovery Index results from April 2009 to November 2013. The most recent fieldwork was conducted during 11th-18th November 2013 inclusive. The full data series is on our website – if you want us to conduct additional analyses (by brands etc) then feel free to get in touch. Economic Recovery Index 3
  • 4. The Economic Recovery Index Using the answers to the question on ‘stages of recovery’ we have created the Economic Recovery Index, which ranges from 0 to 100 (0 = deep recession; 100 = back to peak). Our Index rose further to 29.6 in November 2013, breaking all records since we began tracking the mood of the nation in April 2009: 35 30 25 20 15 10 Oct Nov Sept July Aug June Apr May Mar Feb Dec Jan'13 Oct Nov Sept July Aug June Apr May Mar Feb Jan '12 Dec Oct Nov Sept July Aug June Apr May Mar Feb Dec Jan'11 Oct Nov Sept July Aug June Apr May Mar Feb Dec Jan'10 Oct Nov Aug Sept Jun July 0 Apr '09 5 Source: Amárach Research, November 2013 Economic Recovery Index 4
