UK: The Bank of England's chief economist, Spencer Dale, was reappointed to the Monetary Policy Committee today for another three-year term commencing June 1.
Dale is responsible for the monetary analysis and statistics divisions of the central bank and has served on the MPC since July 2008. His re-appointment drew fire from David Blanchflower, an MPC member between June 2006 and May 2009 who, described Dale as "under-qualified and always on the wrong side of every issue".
