Does printing more money save our economay?

Abhijit Vinayak Banerjee(A Nobel laureate)  has suggested a simple policy for India as its economy baffleed on the impact of the covid crisis: Printing money precisely and transfer cash directly to the bank account of the poor families.


Banerjee suggested that third world countries such as India dont need to worry too much about macroeconomic & hyperinflation stability and fiscal slippages and should do ‘whatever is good for its country man’ to help those who are mostly affected by the economic shock that many fear might be greater and more pervasive than the Great Depression of 1929.


Is it?
Lets find out
To understand just imagine a picture of balance

Where in one side total country’s GDP and in other total printed money. That’s means


And if  this condition become unbalanced so we can definitely found us in a inflation economic condition or deflection economic condition.


So lets brake down that :

       When a whole country tries to get richer by printing more money, it rarely works. Because if everyone has more money, prices go up instead. And people find they need more and more money to buy the same amount of goods.
Take an example, suppose I recently got huge money. So I went market to purchase everything what I dreamt in my life. But hay not only I everyone has that dream. So I found a huge line in malls. The owner of the mall think that hmm:
 so demand , ok lets make the price very high. To earn more profit.. when I entered that mall. WHAT  I pad costs Rs 300000.

And I only have Rs 150000. So the market became like Old once again.  


Cause market make every unbalence situation to balance.
Now you can say why it worse situation every thing became like previous demand & supply.


·      Worst senario .1

Cause earliar where $1= Rs 72
Now it will be          $1= Rs 72*(inflation %+100)%.

It may be Rs 90, 100,1000 or 100000 also.
 So then import will be dengerously costly.
Or we can hardly import.


·      Worst senario .2

Earliar Rice per kg was Rs 50
Now    Rice per kg is    Rs  150.

 And if you see the price the verience to Rs 0 to Rs 50 is 50
 NOW     see the price the verience to Rs 0 to Rs 150 is 150.

In earliar situation earning Rs 50 is more easiar than now where you have to earn Rs 150. Cause this certain infalation can not effect immidiately or with exact percentage  in employee’s wage. So definitely you will earn more than earliar situation but current wage value is less than  previous wage value.

WHAT ; you don’t belive me , Ok see it in your eyes.


This happened recently in Zimbabwe, in Africa, and in Venezuela, in South America, when these countries printed more money to try to make their economies grow.

As the printing presses sped up, prices rose faster, until these countries started to suffer from something called “hyperinflation”. That’s when prices rise by an amazing amount in a year.
When Zimbabwe was hit by hyperinflation, in 2008, prices rose as much as 231,000,000% in a single year. Imagine, a sweet which cost one Zimbabwe dollar before the inflation would have cost 231m Zimbabwean dollars a year later.


This amount of paper would probably be worth more than the banknotes printed on it.
