Shaking the Magic Money Tree

Graham Watson

29th January 2018

Shaking the Magic Money Tree broadcast on Radio 4 looked at the effect of Quantitative Easing on the UK economy. Is it possible to disaggregate its effects, and did it advantage some over others.

I've said many times, that history will not judge this era kindly in this regard - QE have unduly benefitted asset holders, and had interesting inter-generational effects as a result.
