    That's true of the Eurozone. And the BoE only has 0.75% room for manoeuvre.

    But the Fed still has 1.75% to play with before they hit zero. They'll almost certainly cut in March.

    I've never heard of "loan shares", and I can't think what the criminal offence could be. And if it is alleging a criminal offence, shouldn't it say what...

    I think you can count on that.

    Also, as webberg has said, it may be far from clear cut, especially if the employer subsequently transferred the loan to a trust or other entity.
