If borrowing is becoming easier why the we need to extend the quantitative easing program?

There have been some very different and very confusing headlines in the weekend press regarding the UK financial situation and the assistance which the Bank of England will offer in the future. On one hand the Bank of England has made it known that it believes that finance is more readily available to the corporate market than it has been for some time, while on the other there is potentially an extension of the quantitative easing program in the pipeline. So what should we believe?

Yet again we have different comments and different strategies emanating from the Bank of England which have confused many investors and many researchers. If finance is becoming easier to obtain why do we need to potentially extend the quantitative easing program and what benefit would this bring to the UK economy in the medium term?

It will be interesting to see which strategy the Bank of England takes on after the dust settles on 2009 and we begin to look forward to 2010. However, if there is one thing which UK investors dislike more than anything it is confusion and confusing comments from those in authority. We need to seek clarity at this point in the economic cycle and we need to see all parties "singing from the same hymn sheet".
