“Quit Your Moaning” Says Bank Of England

Nice savings you have here. It would be a pity if something happened to them

Savers should stop complaining about poor returns and start spending to help the economy, a senior Bank of England official warned today.

Older households could afford to suffer because they had benefited from previous property price rises, Charles Bean, the deputy governor, suggested.

They should “not expect” to live off interest, he added, admitting that low returns were part of a strategy.

Mr Bean said he “fully sympathised” but he added “I have a cunning plan for the economy” which he refused to elaborate upon.
