Quantitative easing (QE) | Topics | tutor2u Economics

A central bank uses quantitative easing (QE) to increase the base supply of money in the banking system and encourage banks to lend at cheaper interest rates i.e. to small & medium sized businesses.

The UK quantitative easing (QE) programme, where the Bank creates new money to buy financial assets, remains active and unchanged. QE now totals £445 billion of assets, £435 billion of which are government bonds and £10 billion of commercial debt.
