Medium-Term Financial Strategy (MTFS)
The policy adopted by the UK government in 1980 of controlling inflation by embarking on a long-term programme of steady reductions in government borrowing and in the rate of growth of the money supply. This self-imposed constraint on policy-making involved a target range for the growth of sterling M3 falling by 1 per cent each year. The policy continued until 1987 and was replaced by shadowing Deutschmark.
