When the monetary authorities put a seemingly unlimited amount of money into the financial system in order to stimulate the economy; as if they were flying around in helicopters and dropping money from the sky. This usually results in substantial inflation and sometimes hyperinflation.
The Federal Reserve's excessive easy money policy is helicopter economics at its worst.
