I just want to add a factor that I feel has been ignored in all the ongoing debate on how low or even negative interest rates can stimulate economic activity.
During my life as a financial and strategic consultant, I have often seen how the pressure of the interest-costs-clock on projects, have really inspired these to get going, to execute fast. In other words, low interest rates can also inspire laziness.
What a great deal! Take loan at negative interest rates... do nothing... stay in bed... repay... and profit!
