bci23 Posted July 10, 2020 Share Posted July 10, 2020 This is a serious question that I'm only looking for serious answers on. Can someone explain to me the argument for why the fed buying the bonds of a company like Berkshire Hathaway helps the economy in any way? I can't think of any legit answer that could possibly justify it. I can at least see the argument (but don't agree with) for propping up the bonds of companies that need to tap the bond market for additional liquidity like Boeing or Delta but companies like Berkshire and Apple have zero liquidity concerns so what is the argument for printing money to prop up the bonds of companies like that?
