If a private enterprise sees an opportunity to make profits it will take up the venture and will to the bank to borrow the money for the new venture. If the bank is convinced about the returns, it will grant banks ₹ out of the thin air(and this is NOT intermediation) and them to
the private enterprise. The bank does not calculate whether it has enough ₹ in its reserve account at the RBI(India's Central Bank) nor does it dig into the money deposited by people to provide loans to support the claims. If it needs more reserves later the bank will borrow!
In aggregate, then, the private banks decide how many bank-₹ are issued (based on their calculations for potential profits) and the #RBI responds by creating any new Reserve fiat rupees necessary to cover the resulting “clearing” processes in the system. The new Reserves are
issued by the #RBI in exchange for collateral from the private banks. The collateral is held by the RBI on what is known as its “balance sheet.” If it “expands its balance sheet,” it is creating new Reserves. If it “winds down” its balance sheet, it is trading collateral for
existing Reserves—which it then simply “cancels,” erasing them from the system. #LearnMMT

One of the key factors of the weakening of monetary sovereignty is external debt and it is connected to 3 main factors, which is true for almost all developing countries. First is the absence of food sovereignty, any country that imports a lot of food lacks economic sovereignty.
The second factor is dependence on the external sector for energy sovereignty, like India imports more than 80% of its crude oil requirement, and the third factor is the deficiency in industrial, that is a country that exports low-value goods and imports high-value goods. Now
the problem with India's manufacturing plan is that the country will be just an assembler for the world and importing all high-value content like machines and technology. Now, these three become the main sources of deprecation in the currency of the developing world, and if this

As many economists have lately been pointing out, these days the old story about rising inequality, in which it was driven by a growing premium on skill, has lost whatever relevance it may have had.

But here’s the puzzle: Since profits are high while borrowing costs are low, why aren’t we seeing a boom in business investment?

Well, there’s no puzzle here if rising profits reflect rents, not returns on investment.
