What if it happens in the UK?

The central bank of crisis-hit Iceland has cut its interest rate to 17%

Sorry to spam the HPC site today - but here is what happens when you are well and truly cornered and need the IMF to help you out. Interest rates DOWN to only 17%. Handle QE with Care, Alistair Darling

    The fact is that if Gordon Brown had the decency of Callaghan, we would already be in the arms of the IMF. There was a choice of money, IMF or QE.
    Iceland also had the choice of IMF or printing.
