That’s how much the M2 Money Supply has grown (26%) in the past 12 months (vs around 5% in a typical year) and it’s going to grow another $4Tn this year as the Fed continues their easing policy.  This is the biggest growth since 1943, when war-time Money Printing was all the rage.  The looming danger for the economy isn’t only that the monetary printing presses have been in overdrive since the pandemic began, but also that they are already set for the same in 2021. A monetary surge for this year is locked in.

This is like giving kids an extra piece of candy the day after Halloween – it doesn’t change anything, you’re not going to get much of a reaction and the effort is probably wasted….

Bank reserves, currently $3.2 trillion, will increase by about $1.4 trillion this year simply from Fed purchases of Treasurys and mortgage-backed securities at a promised $120 billion a month. In addition, the Treasury indicated in its February Refunding Statement that it will run down its Treasury General Account at the Fed by about $820 billion this year. This money will be spent through federal fiscal programs. These expenditures…
