Honest Fiat Currency Question
To everyone who believes in a fiat currency and believes they understand it, I ask a simple honest question. Why does Japan have such a hard time reducing the value of the yen?
1) Why don't they simply write a check out and pay off 1/2 their gov't debt? Or ALL their gov't debt?
2) Why don't they send a check out to every citizen for 100,000 yen?
3) Why don't they build a facility to hold a 20 year supply of oil and fill it?
In all seriousness, why does Japan consistently buy U.S. Treasury's and purchase dollars on the open market trying to reduce the value of the yen, instead of just doing the above?
Zimbabwe seems to have it down pat, why can't the Japanese do it?
Thanks in advance!
