BBC Radio 4 programme "Shaking the Magic Money Trees" 31/01/201 : Michael Robinson clearly and conclusively exposed the Tory government's Quantitative Easing programme as really a wasted opportunity for helping ordinary working people and a" Magic Money Tree" for the already rich.
Q.E. for the people, particularly in the form of Citizen's Credit would have been much more economically effective and socially beneficial.

Participants in Finland's universal basic income program say they are less stressed and more inspired to find a job than when they were receiving welfare. Some 2000 unemployed participants were given 560 euros every month for two years and were able to undertake part-time positions which would have jeopardized their welfare payments under the normal system.

Director General of the CBI, John Cridland has commented :
" Long-term youth unemployment is a national disgrace that can leave a life-time scar."
ONS statistics show that 188,000 18 to 24 year olds have been unemployed for more than 12 months.
Citizen's Credit available to unemployed people over 18 would help finance internships/apprenticeships and further and higher education generally.
