Who’s going to pay the bill? How does Quantitive Easing really work? | Property Insiders [VIDEO]

It’s been just over a month now since the Coronavirus flipped our lives upside down.

From having to practice social distancing and getting used to life indoors, to continually washing our hands. The Coronavirus Sinks The Global Stock Exchanges.

It’s clear we are all going to be affected by the coronavirus – something none of us expected a few months ago.

Many Australians will lose their jobs, others will have their hours curtailed and most businesses will suffer.

One thing that we have all seen is our businesses suffer, which is making it hard to survive.

Right now, the government is throwing money at everything and anything in the hopes of keeping the economy afloat.

… this could run into hundreds of billions of dollars.

But at some point the lockdown will end and the handouts will stop.

Then what happens?

Who’s paying for all the government handouts?

That’s what I chat about today with leading economist Dr. Andrew Wilson chief economist of My Housing market.

Watch as we discuss:

  1. Who’s going to pay the bill?
    The government has introduced a number of stimulus packages to mimimise unemployment from rising, help businesses survive and assist  ordinary Australians put food on the table.
    The various stimulus packages have amounted to close to $ 18 Billion dollars – where is this money coming from?
  2. What Quantitive easing really is and why the RBA is buying government bonds on the open market
  3. Will this debt ever be paid back?
  4. Will all this xtra debt will lead to inflammation down the track.

Now is the time to take action and set yourself for the opportunities that will present themselves as the market moves on

    Hi Michael and Andrew, Your quick video was surprisingly good. I was expecting return to surplus nonsense. The more interesting question is ‘who do we want to be in deficit?’ The private sector or the government. Please look into Sectoral Balances analysis. As an accounting reality, budget surpluses destroy wealth and deficits create them. And remember our entire monetary system is debt or credit. There is no such thing as paying down the debt, particularly at the government level. Thank you for your video. Stay safe, Nick

      Thanks for taking the time to comment Nick. And I haven’t taken offence to your words that video was “surprisingly” good 🙂

        I guess I read too much financial press and expected more of the same. Offence was not intended. Take The Age Saturday April 11,2020. Shane Wright writes about whether we increase taxes or cut services because GDP growth is so low, going on to claim that increased government spending will force interest rates up. Government deficits have been growing in the US for decades with falling interest rates. Japan has a debt to GDP Ratio of 250% with low inflation and interest rates. Some economists prefer to write about a fictional reality rather than the real world. So congratulations on interviewing an economist who does not talk about a fictional reality.

          And one last comment. The entire monetary system is based on credit and debt. The US has run a government deficit 190 out of 230 odd-years to accumulated debt non stop since 1837. If the debt was repaid the entire financial system would collapse.

          Thanks Nick, no offence was taken. Being in the public eye for 20 years I’m used to getting much nasty comments from all the property pessimists and naysayers who come every time the market turns down.

          And then samara they disappear for five years until they reappear once again hoping the world will crash.

          I record a regular weekly video with Dr. Andrew Wilson – Watch out for them here on Property Update (I assume you subscribe) or you can subscribe on YouTube here: http://www.PropertyInsiders.info
