Keynesian Economics Is In The Insanity Zone
It's Time To Tax Cash?
Financial Repression Is Intensifying
"It is becoming increasingly clear to us that the level of yields at which credit expansion in Europe and Japan will pick up in earnest is probably negative, and substantially so. Therefore, the ECB and BoJ should move more strongly toward penalizing savings via negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes. With this stick would also come a carrot – for example, negative mortgage rates .. Central banks should move more strongly toward penalizing savings, rather than just the institutions that 'house' those savings – the banks."
