Since I am only just beginning to get my head around the concept of currency, interest rates and the general economy, can someone please give me an answer to a hypothetical question i have? What would be the reprecussions of a Government paying for products or paying off dept by printing extra cash to use as buying power, if any? Like sinking unaccounted for money into the system If that makes sense? Inflation? I'm not sure this question even makes sense. But any feedback appreciated.
