If we keep borrowing that ties up a part of the economy.
You can argue if that makes the economy sluggish, but you cannot argue that there is only so much money. We are not priniting money out of the blue, we are borrowing it from someone else.

You put your money in a CD.
The group that offers the CD pays you.
They need to invest that money somewhere or they lose money.
It doesnt just sit there.

The bank is losing money.
They need to invest.
So if there were no bonds they would need to create markets.
