How Not to Waste the Economy

This project of New Economic School (NES) focuses on the problems of the economy, crises, healthcare, education, and personal investments.

Imagine that you need money, you’re in debt, the bills keep piling up, and a money-printing machine is at hand. What would you do? Probably print money. Why is this option dangerous for countries burdened with expenses and debts? Professor Konstantin Egorov from the New Economic School and Professor Oleg Vyugin from the Higher School of Economics explain everything in the new edition the podcast "Economics Out Loud" from the New Economic School.
