The Bank of England may have cut interest rates, reducing funding costs for banks, but you won't see that generosity extended to credit card debt serfs. The spread between LIBOR and credit card interest rates has increased by well over 600 basis points.
It is probably a good thing, hopefully discouraging a further unsustainable increase in household debt. Also, the increased spread presumably increases the profitability of credit cards, and helps banks cover their huge losses speculating on those hopelessly mis-priced asset backed securities. In effect, credit card debtors are providing their very own bank bailout.
Personally, I am grateful to those credit card debtors for this generous assistance to our beleaguered banks. It means less of a burden for taxpayers.
