Want to know why printing money in not the answer to our problems? Inflate your knowledge with this link...

Students---An EXCELLENT, concise lesson on why the US has to be careful about printing money to get us out of the recession...Please take the time to read it---it answers alot of questions...
“Why can’t the government just print more money?” – NOT such a silly question!


  1. I think printing money is fine as long as their is value behind it. So printing money to finance a public bridge is fine if the bridge adds atleast an equal value to society.

    thanks for listening....

  2. Very true. I usually teach it money supply changes in relation to the Equation of Exchange---any increase in money supply SHOULD have a corresponding increase in nomimal GDP because production (Q) increased, not price (P). Of coures V could decrease instead but I think the increase in production (bridges included (useful ones!!)is more desirable. Thanks for the reply!! :)
