I see that herr One-Eye has decided to go on a spree. http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/economics/article5026856.ece And allow greater borrowing for the gov. As much as 3225quid for everyone in the country. Now whilst this would not benefit the country much, it also leaves the man on the street paying for it in more than one way. In my local paper a couple of weeks ago I read a letter that has stayed with me. Instead of bailing out the banks with a direct injection the writer said, the government could pay off our mortgages, or at least reduce them greatly. The banks would benefit from an injection of money and of course we would have greater spending power and be happier with less of a millstone around our necks. This would benefit economy and raise morale. OK, details we can argue about, and I am sure that lots of people would simply pile on more debt in other ways. But I liked the basic premise, it would make me a lot happier and inclined to spend a bit more into the economy rather than make my bank happy and have the wife waving bills at me every so often. Anybody think that the idea could be workable?
