The IEA’s Shadow Monetary Policy Committee’s recommendation that interest rates should have been held at 4.25 per cent has been quoted in The Scotsman, Yahoo!, CCR Magazine and The Daily Brit.

Trevor Williams, the SMPC’s Chair, said:

“The recent bank failures in the US – and SVB UK – are a sign of too rapid a withdrawal of liquidity. Most members of the SMPC believe monetary tightening has gone too far and some of it should be reversed either through resuming Quantitative Easing or lowering the Bank rate. Doing both Quantitative Tightening and raising Bank rate further above 4 per cent is morphing into monetary overkill.”
