KARACHI: This refers to the news item in your paper titled “Printing money can help overcome load-shedding, suggests Gilani” (May 16). If printing money could solve any problem, every single country in the world would be doing it. Evidently, the prime minister does not know that one of the reasons for rampant inflation in Pakistan is also caused by the unchecked printing of notes. I wonder why Mr Gilani didn’t also suggest that Pakistan’s internal and external debts could be paid off by printing money.
