2. For a nation with a strong terms of trade (and external surplus), it is wise for the government to run fiscal surpluses and accumulate them in a sovereign fund to create more future space for non-inflationary spending.

3. A currency-issuing government, that is, one that issues its own floating currency never faces solvency risk with respect to the debt it issues.
