Bank Bailout Mark "Ii" : Will It Work?


  • Maximilian J. B. Hall

    () (Dept of Economics, Loughborough University)


On 19 January 2009, the UK Government unveiled a second comprehensive bank bailout plan. This followed the failure of its October bailout package to stimulate domestic lending, as intended. The various components of the new "rescue package" are duly explained and analysed in this article, which also addresses the likely future course of policy should the Government fail in its latest ambitions to stimulate lending and thereby revive the flagging economy.
