Time for QT, quatative tightening to destroy some of that funny money they used to create the everything bubble.. then make off like bandits and blame the poor for not being productive enough.. lazy feckless pondlife 

As far as I can tell, QE is still alive and well. 

FT: Biggest gilt redemption set to buoy the market. Fresh BoE purchases come as policymakers consider rate rises

In conclusion: BoE continues QE until IRs get to 1.5% above the floor.  Please somebody explain this to me.  Is it just QE all the time now?  IRs were low, we had QE, IRs going up, we get more QE.

We have been warned plenty, it was time to start raising rates years ago so... why wait?

As far as I’m concerned, they haven’t done anything yet, and refuse to believe the nonsense they broadcast (directly or indirectly).

Exactly TPTB will try to avoid it as much as they can.

Yes. It's QE all the time now.

QE has arrived and is here to stay.

Capitalism is dead. QE rules.

A free and endless supply of counterfeit fiat for those who can access it.

The more I watch what's happening here, the more I begin to believe it's all orchestrated.  Forget Carney and Haldane's "Punch and Judy" show.

The real news is "Fed Officials Say Economy Is Ready for Higher Rates": https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/21/business/economy/fed-economy.html

 

That;s been evident since Gorgon Broon saved the world then the Germans were forced to fall into line with the money printing bankers.

Over at Zero Hedge they are talking about Goldman Sachs frantically loading up on bonds, that its clients are selling, in preparation for QE4, which they say will be the final QE, before the whole global system blows up. What gets me is that with every run of QE, they talk about it being the last before everything blows up.

They are still actively doing QE now. They never stopped really.

Inflation is at 3%, the economy is at close to full employment (I know tax credits distort this slightly). There really is no choice but to hike rates.

EXACTLY ...bring it on, I'd like to see a 0.25% hick EVERY month....those of us here who can remember what happened in the late 1980's ....many increases and IR at 17% .....these sheeple who bought in the last few years will be shocked whats coming:ph34r:

And QE is the reason why house prices will not fall. QE can be done over and over, making the majority of people poorer and poorer. To me, it seems that if you didn't put your money into property years ago, you're going to lose it. :(

Or gold. Or silver. Or classic cars. Or modern art. Or fine Cuban cigars.

For educated and successful people, they seem remarkably ignorant about the many historical periods when detached, self-serving elites came to very grizzly ends. In modern times, unlike previously, I imagine they can quickly get on private jets and reach the safety of New Zealand.

Well, he's privately educated from Massachusetts. Intellectual yet idiotic.

For a modern technocrat, narrow intellectuality is king. Common sense, and a broad understanding of history and human nature probably just muddies the water and makes it difficult to get ahead in technocratic circles.

Probably? Definitely.

Kinda strange that events like the soviet collapse, Zimbabwe, Venezuela and even the UK in the 70's gets so much bad press but here we are a decade later into money printing, with savings and the function of money and government bonds all but destroyed, state mega corporations like RBS propped up by the the tax payer and the housing market propped up with a colossal wall of tax subsidies of varying nature.

This is crony-capitalism meets socialism. It's the same nonsense, this time sold by the neo-liberal salesmen to the populations. It didn't work in soviet russia, zimbabwe or 1920's Mafia run Chicargo, it won't work this time either. It could drag out a long time yet though while it strangles the economy. It WILL cause social unrest at some stage if a black swan doesn't pop the bubbles first.
