BERLIN, July 9 (Reuters) - Germany's central bank, the Bundesbank, could be used to buy up corporate bonds to help ease a squeeze on credit markets, German Finance Minister Peer Steinbrueck was quoted as saying on Thursday.

Dear Central Bankers,

I run a small business and need money to buy another computer.

I am happy to issue a bond to you payable in 2069 at a rate of 4% in the sum of £4,000,000.00.

when the interest becomes due next year, I am pleased to inform you that I will be issuing a further bond next year for £4,000,000.00, so payment is guaranteed.

Please make your check payable to the keep Blooloo in funds fund.

Kind regards

Bloo Loo.

Nibbling on something delicious always leads to the temptation of taking a big bite out of it...

I think the covered bond purchases are printing - real QE.

The bundesbank idea is I think a debt swap (central bank collateral for corporate debt).

When the IMF says the UK doesn't have enough money for another round of QE, I reckon they're just saying what they've been told to say.

Because the UK is an integrated economy, I reckon we fully intended to not stimulate next year and let the rest of the world spend instead, to lift us up.

I.e. as primarily consumers, we spend first to lift the productive countries up a little...

Then they spend to try and keep the flame alight, picking us up via secondary industries/services money flow.
