The Result of US Treasury Printing Money

Post by muddlehead »

Perhaps there's a discussion along these lines already. If so, apologies.

Isn't what we're doing now, as a result of Covid-19, the closest, if it isn't the actual real thing, to printing money?

Isn't this printing money kind of thing the most destructive financial endeavor a country can ever undertake?

Haven't we all been told, and learned, that if a country does this, it is the financial death knell?

What am I missing?
