I've become aware of most everything through the internet for the past 15 years. Is your source totaling up all real estate value, corporate value, stock value, bond value, in every market and privately held? Precious metal value, information value, intellectual property, government holdings and endeavors, central bank holdings and capabilities, all debts, assets, and insurance? What about the derivative trade? The total money supply in dollars is a lot more than just the amount of money in circulation... The primary reason I chose to tweak the bond redemption - other than the glaring mistake of retiring a synthetic debt with the tax base - was because the redemption payout goes totally into asset rserve for the banks to lend against. (as do the bonds) The financial markets are always shifting positions and although that trade does set up for main street circulation, it is all in the back ground, it never affects the price of milk.
