John Kay: Short-term weather forecasts are better than medium-term economic forecasts

Spotting a banking crisis is not like predicting the weather 
Short-term weather forecasts are better than medium-term economic forecasts 

The objective of monetisation has not been to put money in the hands of consumers and businesses but to put money in the vaults of banks.
