: In that way, our governments are alike! Ours did the same thing.
But ours did it first. I think I really understood that it wasn't only to support the economy but to counter the danger of deflation. In that way it was a smart move by the government since the would suffer the most from deflation. But it isn't good at all for the environment. And that's the point where I was really mad at them, calling the whole stuff an "environment premium".
