Recession will deepen if firms can’t get credit - Cable
"It is critical that viable businesses get the credit they need if we are to see a good recovery for the UK economy," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Chancellor. Commenting on the record £8.4bn fall in business lending revealed by the Bank of England today, Vince Cable said:
“The figures make it clear that businesses right across the country are continuing to feel the squeeze of the credit crunch.
“If firms are unable to access credit it is likely we will see even more companies going under, deepening the recession and driving up unemployment.
“It is becoming clear that the Bank of England’s attempts to boost lending are only having a limited impact as banks continue to hoard money.
“It is critical that viable businesses get the credit they need if we are to see a good recovery for the UK economy.”
In the UK as well as the world, we live in interesting times. The global economy is in tatters, there is war all over the place and not content with killing and maiming each other, we're also destroying the environment we live in. In the UK we have a failing government and one could go far enough to say a failing political system. There is a lot going on that makes the blood boil. News Rage is a state of angry mind coupled with the actual venting of that anger which manifests itself in the publication of interesting and hopefully entertaining but highly critical articles about something that has been reported in the news within the last 24 hours.
