9.08 Trillion dollars in circulation as money supply hits a new record again

Billions and Billions and Billions and Billions and Billions, etc...... That is how much we are printing each week.  Bernanke et al have the printing press running at full capacity. 

Over the last year we have grown our money supply 4.5% over the course of the year

The exact figure, $9.081 TT for M2, is just over last months record where they pierced the $9 TT rubicon. The four-week average is at an all time high again of $8.981. Money supply is up 4.74% over the 52 weeks and 75 % over ten years.

Has anybody noticed how quickly we have added $400 billion to the money supply in the last year. We have added a Trillion since the crisis began.

And we don't have to worry about inflation, here and abroad?  Right.



Additionally, we have all the money that has been printed by the central government and gobbled up by the central banks of the world and kept on their balance sheet. 




And just for kicks, Pink Floyd's take on the money supply.

  1. It will be interesting to see when and how excess bank reserves are disseminated going forward.

    In excess of $1.5 Tril. is currently sitting at the Fed and accumulating interest which will eventually be lent out, multiplied and contribute to the money in circulation.

  2. The current printing press at the Fed is worrysome and will likely cause inflation, as we can see with the accumulation of assets on the Fed's balance sheet and the wholesale inflation over 5%.

    The real threat of inflation comes from the 3TT of so that since on foreign balance sheets. If that is shed, our money supply immediately increases by 50% and inflation goes up to at least 25%.

    A scary scenario indeed
