What is ‘helicopter money’ and is it a good idea?

With debate increasing over whether “helicopter money” could help tackle the global economic crisis, we asked Schroders’ chief economist Keith Wade about the tactics of governments.

Modern monetary theory (MMT) argues that, rather than central banks printing money to buy financial assets, governments should create money to directly fund public expenditure or tax cuts. This is sometimes referred to as a “helicopter drop”, a term coined by American economist Milton Friedman, or “helicopter money”. Some call it “people’s quantitative easing”. Here’s what Keith Wade had to say on the approach and the potential implications for investors.
