In the final part of the series, David Grossman assesses the impact of Government interventions like Quantitative Easing and Funding for Lending. He looks at their impact on savers and pensioners and asks whether the City has disproportionately benefited from their effects.
The programme also investigates the growth of speculation on the price of commodities like oil, a practice that's been fuelled by fears of inflation as a result of QE. Has the rise in the price of consumables in recent years been driven by demand or by the effects of increased speculation? And who ultimately pays for it?
