Many have proposed negative interest rates as further ‘easing’ to help the economy.(too many, actually)

The proposed deposit tax in Cypress is functionally a one time negative interest rate. So maybe if they made it annual- just like the negative interest rates proposed elsewhere- it would help the economy?

So as previously discussed, I still see it in a spectrum. Positive rates are a govt subsidy and negative rates a tax. And so the Fed’s rate cuts and QE removed the prior subsidy, for example.
