UK must not let ‘zombie’ banks drain the economy – Telegraph

Liam Halligan writing in the Telegraph:

Japan didn’t stagnate in the 1990s because it refused to do QE and a massive fiscal expansion, or because it waited and did both half-heartedly. Japan suffered a 10-year slump precisely because its too-big-to-fail, politically-connected “zombie” banks were allowed to stagger on, acting as a massive drain on the broader economy. And, much as it pains me to write it, that’s precisely what’s happening in the UK.
