Imf Report On Public Finances

Recommended Posts

The IMF have a serious lack of credibility though.

They had a report out a couple of weeks ago saying the UK was doing great, now we are doomed, next week all will be rosy etc, etc.

Fairplay to giving many warnings about the housing markets all over the world for several years while Brown was scoffing at them but in the last twelve months they have been somewhat lousy.

(I agree with this particular report though) ;)

May 2009 More Banks May Have to be Nationalised

The Fund believes that although the drastic measures to prop up Royal Bank of Scotland, Lloyds Banking Group and other major lenders had prevented them from collapse, more public money needs to be poured in if the economy is to get back to full strength. The alternative is a "zombie" recovery as banks continue to withhold lending for years, the IMF has told the Treasury.
