Dont underestimate our politicians,we are in debt,the whole world is in debt,and the best way to reduce debt, is with inflation. The best way to encourage inflation, is over supply of money, ie print money, just like banana republics have been doing for years, leading to failure, oh and Germany did it in the early 1930's. "But surely a modern day,western country would not do that" I hear you say, leading to savings being wiped out. The solution thay have come up with, is to give it a name,that they think will fool the public,"Quantitative easing",make no mistake the bank of England, have no intention of keeping inflation under control, quite the reverse. The only problem they have at the moment,is hiding the figures from the public,as it takes hold, but they managed to hide some 4000,000 people from showing up on the unemployment figures for years,so I guess they will find a way.
