Subject: Re: Tax, Borrow or Wait? Something�s got to give in Trudeau�s budget, Theophilos Argitis, February 23, 2017

Austerity hawks argue that financial markets will punish Canada for big deficits. But the 2008 financial crisis demonstrated that when our large institutional lenders got into trouble, the Canadian government nonetheless had the fiscal capacity to bail them out with billions in "Extraordinary Financing".

Bond vigilantes have little power when Canadian dollars are no longer gold-backed, and the government's central bank can create by computer entry whatever money the government requires. The federal government can either spend too much causing inflation or too little allowing mass unemployment. Today we have 1.3 million unemployed Canadians whose talents and productivity are being wasted. Infrastructure renewal will employ skilled workers, but the government must also hire off the bottom by creating local jobs in community service and environmental conservation.

During the depths of the Great Depression, John Maynard Keynes argued in a radio debate, "I do not believe that measures which truly enrich the country will injure the public credit�Look after the unemployment, and the Budget will look after itself."


1. How the Bank of Canada Creates Money for the Federal Government: Operational and Legal Aspects, Library of Parliament

"By recording new and equal amounts on the asset and liability sides of its balance sheet, the Bank of Canada creates money through a few keystrokes. The federal government can spend the newly created bank deposits in the Canadian economy if it wishes."
".....there is no external limit to the total amount of money that the Bank of Canada may create for the federal government."
"The Bank of Canada's money creation for the Government of Canada is an internal government process. This means that external factors, such as financial markets dysfunction, cannot cause the federal government to run out of money."

2. John Maynard Keynes quote:
3. Improving Access to Financing and Strengthening Canada's ...

"To soften the impact of the crisis, the first phase of Canada�s Economic Action Plan included measures to provide up to $200 billion to support lending to Canadian households and businesses through the Extraordinary Financing Framework."
