Now it's time for the latest "Stimulus" deal from your government. Anyone capable of even a tiny amount of economic reasoning can figure out that this is just another method the elite to steal property.
The supposed idea of an economic stimulus plan is to raise the overall prosperity of the country by having the government print new money and spend it. The increased government spending creates new demand for those products and services that the government buys, which in turn will create new jobs for people working to fill that demand. These new workers will have new money to spend, which will increase demand for whatever they choose to buy, which will create more new jobs, and so on. This is known as the multiplier effect, and it was thought up by Keynes, and it's false.
If it were possible to raise the overall prosperity of a country by printing and spending new money, then you could not explain why there is even one poor country anywhere in the world. For all that country would have to do is print a lot of money and spend it. In fact, you could not explain why there is even one single poor person anywhere in the world, for all that we would need to do is print $1,000,000 bills and give everybody one and make everybody rich.
It doesn't work like that. If you gave everybody $1,000,000 of new money, there still would not be any more houses, or food, or clothes, or any goods or any services than there was before. All that would happen is that the price of everything would go way up.
The cause of the current financial meltdown is the Federal Reserve System. By inflating the money supply, it artificially lowers the interest rate, which makes certain investments appear profitable when they are not. The Austrian economists have a complete theory of the business cycle (see Rothbard for example), and they alone predicted this crises. I highly recommend Thomas E. Woods' new book Meltdown.
Printing and spending new money does not have the ability to generate new wealth, but it certainly does have the ability to redistribute existing wealth. The net effect of the "stimulus" spending will be to transfer real wealth into the hands of the early receivers of the new money, and out of the hands of the late receivers.
In other words, the government and the Fed and their friends are stealing from everyone else.
