The decision to cut Bank rate from 5.75% to 5.5% earlier this month was, after all, clear cut. All nine members, including the hawks, voted to do it. Financial market conditions had deteriorated, they said, and the medium-term downward risks to both growth and inflation outweighed upward pressures in the short term. Hard to argue with that. The details are here.


I have to admit, thats still somewhat of a surprise.
