Why Not Print More Money
If you think If the government can print money, why doesn’t it just print money and hand it out?
The Simple Answer is If People start printing money then inflation is start. In economics, inflation is a sustained increase in the general price level of goods and services in an economy over a period of time.
If we print more money, the one dollar you have in your wallet, will lose value. Yes, it’s still worth a dollar but that dollar will not buy you as much as it did before. This is because of scarcity, the dollar will lose its value if more is printed because there is more out there, it’s easier to get.
