I have no doubt that if you say "artificial stimulus" long enough, you'll be right some day. I hope you live to see it.
What's Time?
Of course I do. Nine years out is bad enough. But to go out 74 years? C'mon, you can't be serious. (The only reason I provided even the data going out to 2024 is because I made a statement about the forecast of debt-to-GDP ratio in my original post, and since I said that I would provide links, I felt compelled to do so. At least, I am using a credible, non-partisan source like the CBO, unlike you). The site that you linked looks like something I would not trust as far as I...

So what's the problem with the US government printing money? Have any facts you'd like to share?
"Assertions"? Would you like links to the data? Happy to oblige.
The "/sarcasm" tag in your post is misplaced. Unless your household is allowed to print money. /sarcasm
Fair enough. I take back the 'Far Right' bit. Why don't you address the substantive portion of my comment?
Please give up on this. There's so much about this that you don't understand. Let's start with the comparison to Ireland, Spain and Greece: it's meaningless. They had control over their fiscal policies, but not their monetary policy (in Euros). The US controls both its fiscal and monetary policies. Huge difference. If the debt were perceived to be an issue US we would, at a minimum, see higher interest rates, higher inflation, and a dollar depreciation. We have had for...
