The path towards negative interest rates

In a coronavirus environment where people are prevented from interacting and working the ability to finance debts diminishes rapidly.  How can we finance this gap?  Negative interest rates on debt.   A transfer from asset holders to debt holders.   Governments will also need to look to support employment income during quarantine periods as companies, especially smaller service based companies on small operating margins are most at risk.  We need fiscal and monetary measures as well as health and medical to address this developing event.

I have just been reading about the plagiarism issue with Margaret Wente at the Globe and Mail.  The similarities between the various pieces do look genetically similar.  No more money for old rope!
