The Fed repays to the Treasury whatever interest is earned on its bonds. So, borrowing -- from the government's point of view -- becomes free! It's every despot's dream.

Of course, the drop in the dollar's value as a result of all that money-printing is paid by us when we try to exchange those dollars for actual goods.
