Monetarism Rules!

The IMF has given guarded support for the government's plans for reducing the budget deficit (currently £4.8 Trillion).

The IMF's crystal ball gazers are of the view that the economy remains on track for a "moderate" recovery, if interest rates remain low and inflation eases.

However, the IMF also stated that if the high risks of an ongoing slump continue; then the economy should be stimulated with a combination of more quantitative easing and temporary tax cuts.

In other words, the economy may well need a monetarist stimulation rather than a Keynesian one.
