Easy money

Easy money is the opposite of tight money, and it is an actual financial term that is used although it has entered into colloquial language.

Easy money refers to times when it is quite easy to get credit, as happened perhaps to too great an extent in the run up to the credit crunch, and happens when the banking systems are looking for bank credit to increase, or at least allowed to.

This leads generally to economic growth unless it goes over the top and also to inflation.
