US kicking the UK

Mark-Carney-US-kicking-the-can-over-budget-is-unhelpful

US treasury yields are on the up, and if US treasury yields are on the up then Carney might feel he doesn't have many options to keep UK interest rates down. The UK, and the world, has been a beneficiary of the low borrowing costs of the US, rather than solely of the BoE programme. Carney suggests reducing gov. expenditure because if the US is forced to taper then the UK can hardly continue monetizing with our own QE programme. But the US has no intention of getting government expenditure under responsible control and are politically committed to trying the government stimulus route. Carney is begging at an empty table.

  • “The UK, and the world, has been a beneficiary of the low borrowing costs of the US”.

    No.

    They ripped off savers and destroyed the economy making it a giant crony capitalist ponzi scheme.

    It’s all run for the benefit of the 0,1%
