The move, dubbed QE2, is the first change to QE since November 2009 and is the clearest signal yet that the Bank thinks Britain is on the brink of a double-dip recession. Business leaders welcomed the announcement after figures revealed Britain suffered a deeper recession and is recovering more slowly than first thought. However, the decision raised fears of a surge in the already-high rate of inflation, which would erode savings and pension funds.
