    Thanks for sharing the clip. Perfect timing. Just read an article about BOE. The article talks about BOE holds – one third of UK’s gov’t bonds. I think this is how it works. The interests earned on the UK government bonds are transferred back to UK government as a form of revenue. On the maturity day, just cancel the bonds held at BOE without buying them back. It seems same principle could apply to any paper asset held by any central bank around the world! Is this the “EXIT” strategy – “creative accounting”? Langley, BC
