High Interest Rates: taking money out of the economy
Low Interest Rates: encouraging spending
Base rate at the moment is 0.5% to combat recession. The base rate is the rate at which the Bank of England lends to other financial institutions and is set by the Monetary Policy Committee in response to economic conditions.
The Base rate is set by the Bank of England and can alter quite regularly. The Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee meets monthly, they announce any changes to the rate. This is then the standard base interest rate used for most financial products including UK Mortgages. Mortgage lenders have their own interest rate which they charge for lending money, this interest rate is then added onto the Standard Base Rate. Any change in the standard base rate will affect almost every mortgage and loan and how much each loan is affected depends on the product taken out by the borrower.
Inflation is a rise in the general level of prices of goods and services in an economy over a period of time
Aiming to increase money flowing around an economy when interest rates can’t be cut any further
Bank of England buys assets in exchange for money. For example buying government debt.
It simply increases the size of banks’ accounts at the central banks.
Let's come back on GDP again
