T-Bills<quoted text>So which has a better return to the overall economy, the money invested in those "non-risky" investments like Treasury bonds (which results in no growth to the economy), or the money invested with the small entrepreneur who may go out of business, thus losing your investment, or who may have a successful restaurant that employs a dozen, opens a second restaurant and employs another dozen and eventually has a chain and employs hundreds. Which has the long term best benefit to the economy? The government does not and cannot grow the economy in any real sense. It is the small business that is the engine that truly drives this economy.
Investors who buy T-Bills increase the supply of money available to the government, thereby reducing the interest rate the government pays to borrow money.
It's called supply and demand.
Increased supply means lowers price per unit.
That means lowered government costs, lowered deficit, and lowered debt.
