    In this photo taken Dec. 1, 2011, House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio leaves his news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. The year-end government spending on the table after three failed high-profile efforts at big deficit deals shows how hard it is to stem the government's flow of red ink. Lawmakers are poised to renew a Social Security tax cut, and to continue unemployment benefits to people out of work for more than half a year. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)

    Posted: 10/6/2011 8:59:04 AM EST
    The Bank of England is seen against a blue sky in the City of London October 6, 2011. The Bank of England will spend 75 billion pounds more of newly-created money to shield Britain's economy from the euro zone debt crisis and keep a faltering recovery going, opting for an early, dramatic move to maximise the impact. Thursday's decision by the BoE to expand its asset purchase programme to a total of 275 billion pounds highlights the precarious state of Britain's economy as global growth slows, government spending cuts and tax hikes bite, and consumers face high inflation and slow wage rises.
