The article reports on the argument concerning the plan of Great Britain's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) to develop £125 billion of printed money. The money will be used by the Bank of England (BoE) to purchase bonds from investors which aims to increase the country's monetary supply and lending offered to businesses and consumers. However, economists argue that the move will fail to boost the economy and an effective assessment of lending and money supply should be considered.
