Report Is Therea Fatal Flaw In Mr Bean's Cunning Plan? in House prices and the economy Posted March 9, 2009 · Edited March 9, 2009 by bootfair Well this is what I'm thinking, if they sell back the assets at a low price, then the plan to suck back the QE money won't work... there will still be the cash in the system... the difference between what they bought it for and what they can sell it for will still be sloshing around in the system won't it... It doesn't sound so cunning to me.... Buy high, sell low?Surely they have to perform at a level greater than 0? Clever old bankers. Rip you off on a car and then buy it back from you for less than the scrap value.
