Svar: Nej, men det är vad politiker försöker göra trots att det är solklart att mer skuld leder till lägre produktivitet. Några rader från en artikel på positivemoney.org.uk som tar upp denna tragiska situation: You Can’t Solve The Debt Crisis With More Debt
Here`s a simple fact that we need to bear in mind as the financial crisis continues:
We cannot solve a debt crisis by adding more debt.
It`s a fact that seems to have been completely missed by the IMF, European Union and our own government.
The solution to Greece? More debt. The solution to the US government`s inability to fund two simultaneous wars from tax revenue: more debt. The solution to the high indebtness of ordinary people in the UK? Get banks lending again: let`s have more debt.
The unfortunate fact is that the authorities, governments, central banks and many mainstream economists simply do not have an answer. They are trying to postpone the inevitable collapse of a banking and monetary system that is systematically bound to collapse sooner or later. From our own personal experience with the civil servants doing the grunt work at the Banking Commission and the Treasury, and discussions with people at the FSA, the people that we are relying on to fix this crisis simply can`t think outside the framework that they were taught at university.
They accept as normal a system where all the money used by the public is created – in the words of Financial Times economics Martin Wolf – `out of nothing by private banks` often foolish lending`.
They never think long enough to realize that this means that the only way of getting more money into the hands of the public is for them to go further into debt.
