Why banks are still not lending?

"Financial crisis? It's a pyramid, stupid."

Most likely, the best and most comprehensive explanation why the banks are still not lending to ordinary business and people on a level expected by the public and the government. The analysis is clear and indicates that banks are not start going to start lending more soon, and that the banking system requires thorough overhaul.

    There does seem to be something suspicious about the way the government harps on about extending credit, because they always present that as an overall increase in lending, rather than keeping companies ticking over.
    He puts his case very well. Wonder when home owners are going to twig that there aren’t any more mortgages coming…

  • Wouldn’t it be fair to say that as long as the banks are NOT lending, the danger of inflation from printing money to shore up the banks’ balance sheets is substantially reduced?
