Is there a case for the UK to introduce a debt reduction strategy? This may be through debt cancellation (forgiveness), debt to equity conversion or even inflation. How might this be delivered in practice? Presumably there would be consequences for creditors, such as banks and insurance companies. What might be the medium-term economic consequences in terms of inequality, investment and productivity? This maybe an opportunity to move towards more equity finance. Should this approach be the part of the Government’s Exit Strategy?
