About

Money Printer Go Brrr is an image macro series depicting Wojaks representing the federal reserve printing money to prop up the bond market in attempts to prevent an economic downturn. The memes were popularized in March 2020, following the United States government loaning $1.5 trillion to several large banks following a massive stock market crash during the 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak.

Origin

On March 9th, 2020, Twitter user @femalelandlords tweeted an image of a Zoomer Wojak wearing an anarcho-capitalist bowtie pleading with a Boomer Wojak representing the United States Federal Reserve not to “artificially inflate the economy by creating money to fight an economic downturn,” leading the Federal Reserve to reply “haha money printer go brrrrr” (shown below). Within eight days, the tweet gained over 16,000 likes and 3,000 retweets.
