One thought on “Stimulation or not?

    Still a fair degree of puzzlement still at Mervyn King’s exploding Budget submission yesterday. One theory doing the rounds in government is that Merv was actually trying his hand at a touch of media management. The Governor nailed his intellectual sails to the quantitative easing mast, believing that printing money is needed to avoid deflation. But yesterday’s CPI figures came as a worrying shock to Merv – 3.2 per cent. So he needed to create a distraction, to avoid questions being asked about his own decisions. Hence his little present for Gordon at the Treasury Select Committee yesterday. That, as I say, is one theory being talked about in Whitehall.
