Helicopter money:

This is an unconventional monetary policy tool aimed at bringing a flagging economy back on track. It involves printing large sums of money and distributing it to the public. American economist Milton Friedman coined this term.

How will Helicopter Money help the Economy?

  • Simply put, Helicopter Money means an extension of non-repayable money transfer from the central bank to the state and central governments, to infuse liquidity in the system.
  • The policy aims at putting more money into the pockets of people to nudge them to spend more money and in turn pick-up economic activity in the country.
  • The direct impact of Helicopter Money is a rise in the disposable incomes of the people, an increase in money supply to boost demand and inflation in the economy.
