How to get free money on loan and earn it as well
In a financial world where negative rates also exist, it can happen that you get paid for a loan. How is it possible? It is a mathematical question. If you borrow money with a negative interest rate, you will return less money than you had.
At this point the question you are asking yourself is: who is that fool who pays to give his money? The answer is the largest bank on the continent, the European Central Bank. If a state asks the ESM (European Stability Mechanism) for money on loan for 7 years, the rate applied will be negative, or -0.07%. It means that less money will be returned to the ECB in the end than it has been.

If Italy wanted to apply for a loan it would be entitled to have 36 billion from the ESM. For a 7-year loan, our country would return 36 billion by 25 million euros at maturity. That’s about 3.5 million a year in savings.
And you are still wondering: what are we waiting for to ask for this money? It is a question that many people ask. Someone maliciously ventured an answer. It is true that the rate is negative but in the end the money must be returned. Rightly because they are loans. But this is a brake because within the government, but also in the opposition, someone would like money to be paid out.
Meanwhile, the MEF, the Ministry of the Treasury and the Economy, to find fresh money issues 10-year BTPs paying an annual interest rate of 1.7%.
