BoE’s Posen on inflation

 BoE’s Posen states the inflation target did not pose a stability problem; UK policy action is broadly correct, inflation undershoot is a concern. The response of fiscal policy should be activism to try and stimulate the economy. He goes on to say that UK actions are ahead of EU and US actions. The  effects of quantitative easing is unpredictable, was the right policy.
