Many dont need the money. In the leadup to the virus outbreak, Japan Inc. was hoarding its cash instead of investing it in capital or paying higher wages. Much of it was spent on share-buybacks and dividends for shareholders. Indeed the frustrated government was thinking of taxing their retained earnings, which were piling up at a record high.

So give the money to consumers, preferably as coupons that must be spent. Japan Inc. will benefit as a result of that and will have to work for its money.

I hope the FED is watching and listening. Japan may be the future of Western economies unless we find a solution.
