Nouriel Roubini tells the FT…

“Until last year policymakers could always produce a new rabbit from their hat to trigger asset reflation and economic recovery. Zero policy rates, QE1, QE2, credit easing, fiscal stimulus, ring-fencing, liquidity provision to the tune of trillions of dollars and bailing out banks and financial institutions – all have been tried. But now we have run out of rabbits to reveal.”

    Quantitative Easing is not a “rabbit from a hat”, it’s just stealing from savers to put off the inevitable – that feckless borrowers, including the government, must be made to pay for their mistakes.

    Savers normally spend in a downturn, keeping the economy ticking over. Savers cash being stolen by REAL inflation, money printing, and trashing of the UK Pound to save borrowers….. why the hell would they go spending. Answer is, they are not.

    People like the Bank of England are practising financial terrorism on savers.

    Never underestimate the ability of politicians to come up with ideas that sound good while actually achieve nothing. It is a consequence of the 24hour news cycle that they have to be seen to be doing something
