Is the quantitative easing policy flawed?

As we see the first tranche of quantitative easing money flow into the UK debt market there are serious concerns that the quantitative easing policy is fatally flawed. The indications are that very few UK institutions came forward to sell their government securities and other debt instruments leaving the assumption that the vast majority of the £2 billion spent so far has gone to overseas investors. So is the quantitative easing policy of the Bank of England fatally flawed?

There are serious concerns that the UK government may well be throwing good money after bad with a suggestion that the billions of pounds being used to redeem certain debt instruments is actually flowing out of the UK and will be of no benefit to the UK economy. If this is the case the UK government have a real problem on their hands because they are unable to specify that only UK investors can benefit from the scheme as this would probably fall foul of European and UK discrimination laws.

While there is no certainty yet that the money is flowing out of the UK, if this is the case then the UK economy could well continue to spiral downwards, headlong towards a depression.
