Deltawave comments: "So, if I was to scan in and print some tenners and then use them to buy say groceries, that must be fine. I can argue in court I'm adding liquidity into the market place.Whenever some one realises they have a dud tenner they want to buy something really quickly so they get rid of it."
"Home sellers slash asking prices. Stagnating housing market sees more than a third of vendors in the UK reduce the asking price of their property."
eboy says: "Finally some good news about house prices, a relief after the last ten years of severe house-price inflation doom-and-gloom."
Hesperidean comments: "Amazing that recovery is called higher tuition fees, cuts in spending, lengthening of dole queues. In my opinion nothing will start to be definitely fixed until those corporations that so much earned in the buoyant times re-invest their profits gradually. Retrieve them from their coffers abroad and globalisation be stopped once and for ever."
Hesperidean thinks:"Shall we go back to Adam and Eve's clothing habits? I cannot see how a cloth bubble could be generated, unless stimulating egos be the cause."
Joe Scaramanga from London writes: "But surely, you're losing £14,000 of pension money, but working for an extra two years which will earn you MORE than £14,000. From a paper that continually bangs on about scroungers, surely you should be in favour of making people work a couple of extra years to ease the burden on the DWP."
bampbs writes: "Germany is doing well. Once again, if you're a small Eurozone country that needs a monetary policy that's different from what the big guys need, tough luck. Germany has benefited enormously from the inability of weaker Eurozone members to devalue, and thus make German exports less competitive. The payment for this benefit has at last come due."
Brad Paul thinks: "This is the worst monetary policy decision in the history of the United States."
george ballester jr thinks: "Bernanke's QE2 is a very dangerous act, debasing USD and encouraging international currency/trade war, that could lead to real war."
bakho says: "It sounds like, "Cover your ass, at least we did something". They are ideologically blind to the fact that fiscal policy can be used for direct job creation. We are a nation run by political hacks."
