One Response to “Grant Says Quantitative Easing Is Just Money Printing”

  1. Yes, QE is one way the government adds money to the economy. Another way is deficit spending, but of course, that increases the “dreaded” debt. So, because the President and Congress either are too uninformed or too cowardly to do the right thing, i.e. deficit spend, it is left to the Fed to try to resuscitate the economy by adding money through the back door.

    Eventually, the politicians may begin to help voters understand that big economies have more money than do small economies, so for an economy to grow the money supply must grow — and that requires federal deficit spending.

    Further, the notion of a monetarily sovereign nations needing to increase exports (by reducing the strength of their dollar) is obsolete. The U.S. does not need to export. Period. When we export, we receive dollars, which we can produce at will.
