Money, Credit & Banking

"Years from now, the events of late 2007 and early 2008 will be remembered as a classic case study of the flawed thinking by governments that choose to use monetary policy to try to sustain an unsustainable economic bubble, and how that action broadens and deepens the pain when the bubble inevitably bursts. And the bubble always bursts."

"The old image of cranking up the printing press to increase money supply is outdated in the digital age. Now computer keystrokes can create dollars or euros or yen by the billions, and then move them around the globe at cyberspeed. But advances in technology and global finance have not changed the basic economic principal represented by the printing press: when central banks can churn out paper money at will, the value of this paper is highly suspect."

Dr. Marc Faber, from the Foreword of "The Goldwatcher".

US Money SupplyUK M4 Money Supply

Money supply is the amount of paper money substitutes in circulation. As there is no limit to the production of paper money, since the early 1970’s the supply of money substitutes has increased at an exponential rate. To put this statement into perspective, consider that it took the entire history of the dollar up to 1974 to create the first $1 trillion of money supply (M3), and only one single year (March 2008 – April 2009) to create the latest trillion! The UK took all previous history of the pound up to the end of 2002 to create the first £1 trillion of money supply (termed M4 in the UK) and only 6.5 years to 2009 to double it. These growth rates are truly staggering and acutely frightening.
