Keynesian Leaches

There was a time when doctors would prescribe leaches for certain health problems.  When it did not work they often just increased the dose, with more leaches.   Often the leaches would kill the patient.  The Keynesian economists today do a similar thing.  They prescribe money creation.  When that does not work, they prescribe an increased dosage of money creation.   Eventually the patient, the economy, dies.
