Tight or loose….?

Ironic is it not that today's low inflation figure follows some months of falling interest rates – in an effect which appears to be quite the opposite of the standard prescription of raising interest rates to lower inflationary expectations.

Could it be that the link between monetary policy aspirations and real world outcomes is not as robust as we once might have liked to think?
