CPS welcomes Lord MacPherson's comments on quantitative easing

Daniel Mahoney, Head of Economic Research at the CPS, responded to comments by Lord MacPherson, former Permanent Secretary to the Treasury, on the dangers of quantitative easing.

Daniel Mahoney welcomed the comments, adding “persistently loose monetary policy has left the Bank of England with little room to react to potential future shocks…It is vitally important for the Bank of England to begin normalising monetary policy at the earliest opportunity.”
