Supplementary notes

The source states: "Helicopter money is an idea first hinted at by Milton Friedman in 1969. In basic terms, imagine a helicopter flying over a country and dropping money on the population below. If those people were to spend that money, that could give an instant boost to the economy."

* This question was phrased by the source as follows: "Imagine you received €200 in your bank account each month, for a year. You are free to do what you want with the money and don’t need to repay it or pay taxes on it. How would you use this extra money?" The numbers shown here depict the respondents answering 'I would spend most of the money'.
