The Bank of England Governor Mark Carney has compared the UK's productivity to singer Jake Bugg during his first regional speech in Nottingham.
Carney said: "The UK is no more productive than it was back in 2005 - before Jake Bugg got his first guitar and since then...he's had a number one record and a string of very successful gigs. He's become a lot more productive".
The musician, who is from Nottingham, released his self-titled debut album last year which went to number one in the charts and he was nominated for a 2013 Brit Award.
