Speaking of the UK, guess the last time that UK consumer spending suffered a lack of rebound after a recession as bad as this one - 1980? 1970? ...try 1880!! Yes, thats right 1880A.D, LOL. Either the brits are getting tighter(that's my theory) or there is an ever dwindling amount of penny's to spend

Margins for many uk businesses are very tight, staff are not getting wage rises because there is no money to give them. Their discretionary spending is taking a hammering. The government tax take from business is relentless, in the last quater my business paid to the treasury 2.45 times its nett profit! - tax on employing people-up, vat-up, tax on insurance, tax on buildings(goes to central government) tax on fuel - up, tax on marketing -new, tax on basically everything they can think of. Unless you run a business operating in some type of government protected monopoly you are pretty screwed. Government contractors, banks, local government services providers - all fine. Try making something though and actually turning a profit - damned hard. Of course if you are a multinational with a well oiled lobbyist or two, corporation tax is essentially optional - not so for domestic businesses who are first in line at the shearing station.

QE3 or not, it doesn't matter....QE2 is still in progress and made not a dint on a sustainable employment growth. As this economy collapses and Unemployment rises above 10% again, the contempt against the FED will become feaver pitch, both politically and financially. The FED will be extra reactive and try to throw more money but with only negative results.

Worldwide manufacturing slowing.
US economy contracting.
Unemployment remaining high.
Stocks poised for a fall.

May I suggest a bit of monetary easing to cure what ails ya.
