Is the MPC bringing quantitative easing in by the back door?

It seems that each and every day we read the financial press there is a new story and a new rumour regarding the UK banking sector and the reintroduction of the Bank of England's quantitative easing programme. Despite very little in the way of direct comment regarding the potential resurgence of the quantitative easing programme it seems that behind-the-scenes discussions will inevitably lead to the programme making a comeback.

The economic problems in Ireland are also starting to have an impact upon the European investment markets and indeed other governments around the world will also be paying very close attention to the issue. If Ireland, or any other worldwide economy, was to collapse and require an international bailout this could be the last straw for funding in the UK and would likely lead to the immediate introduction of a new quantitative easing programme.

It is the softly softly approach from the Bank of England, regarding quantitative easing, which has puzzled many investors who are looking for formal discussion on the issue. Many members of the MPC believe that without quantitative easing the UK economy could stagnate which would be very damaging in the short to medium term.
