    BOJ's negative rates to keep money flowing through economy

    Japanese Economy Minister Nobuteru Ishihara said on Tuesday the Bank of Japan's adoption of negative interest rates is intended to make sure money flows through the economy.

    Ishihara, speaking to reporters, said it will take more time to analyze the impact of negative rates but it is already starting to affect mortgages and auto loans.

    He also said the adoption of negative rates shows the central bank's strong determination to beat deflation.

    I've also read that negative interest rates are a way to encourage banks to give out loans, because they lose money by holding on to cash, but would presumably make money by lending it out and charging interest. But isn't handing out easy loans what lead to the 2008 "financial crisis" when people realized they couldn't possibly pay back their ridiculous mortgages and the whole housing bubble burst? This seems like it would be a short term solution at best and then we end up even worse off than when we started.

    Very true.
    Most people think if they even hear about anything about negative interest rates is that it is just bunk. That is because it goes against everything we have been taught and against the way things have been done for centuries. Like I said above it is a last-ditch effort by the central banks just to kick-the-can down the road a little tiny bit farther. Think about it for a minute and you can see just how close to the end we must be.

    EVERYTHING you see now is but smoke&mirrors to hide the endgame to hide things
    to a point where it will be too late for us in many ways. one day soon america will be
    like the movie the hungergames. money as we have known it will no longer exsist.

    there will be the Capital and the slaves the slave will provide for the capital.

    hell wait a minute arn't we doing that all ready. oh but for now at least were paid.
    i believe we will enter a phase in history where money for the common man will not exist
    wealth for the elite will be in land resorces like that.
