Should central banks create money out of thin air and give it directly to governments and average citizens? If you can believe it, this is now under serious consideration. Since 2008, global central banks have cut interest rates 637 times, they have injected 12.3 trillion dollars into the global financial system through various quantitative easing programs, and we have seen an explosion of government debt unlike anything we have ever witnessed before. But despite these unprecedented measures, the global economy is still deeply struggling.
Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
If they really want to give us money, great! I’ll take the same million dollars that Trump brags he started out with. And I’ll goddammed create with it, not just spend it.
