A recent survey shows that the number one fear of global business leaders right now is that the economy will fall into a new recession this year. If even those people are afraid, we too should probably get prepared.
In 2008, governments and central banks “solved” the problem by injecting trillions into financial markets with quantitative easing. Of course, it didn’t do much to help the real economy and made the rich even richer.
If we don’t act now, there’s a huge risk that the authorities will use the same recipes: they’ll bail out the financial sector instead of the real economy. And we know that ordinary people will be the ones paying the price.
For years now, a growing number of economists and NGOs like us have been promoting “helicopter money” as an alternative solution that is simple, fair, and democratic.
