The dollar is weakening and looks like it could loose sufficient value to warrant a change in economic policy. However, US consumer debt could be eroded by a period of high inflation. Would the Fed allow it? If not, the chances are that UK interest rates would rise; if so, would the UK face growing inflationary pressure the Independent BoE would have to act against. Either way, this does not increase the chance of an Interest Rate cut.
