The money supply chart is completely wrong.  Money supply peaked in 2007, failed to expand exponential in 2008, started collapsing in 2009, and is now collapsing at a NEGATIVE -$808B pace for Q1 2010.

I keep telling everyone that both the Fed's monetary & fed.gov's fiscal policies were strictly short-term in nature. When pundits say 'extend & pretend', guess what, it really was about temporarily extending & pretending until the "real" underlying economy began once again experiencing organic growth.

Ben's jawboning helicopter talk was bullshit, nothing more - simply printing money does nothing. Monetarism was/is all about changing perceptions - flood people with enough cash in order to get them to change/revert behavior (ie the 'green shoots' propaganda campaign).

The only chance was 2008. But if $24T (give or take a few Ts) didn't do it 2 years ago, it's over, done. The hail mary pass was incomplete and the clock ran out. It's not the amount, it's the psychology.

Chick Hearn, the late Laker announcer, used to try and call blow outs as early as possible with his "This game's in the refrigerator: the door is closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cooling, the butter's getting hard, and the Jell-O's jigglin'!

Ilargi @ TAE called it a few weeks ago; Mish joined him today with his "That's all folks". Denninger is still hedging, but will probably break within days/weeks with a flat-out declaration.

Drop the Hollywood imagery of drama & suspense. The next decade(s) is just gonna be a grind while we de-lever and work through the malinvestment.

When the amount of products you produce as a nation continues to go down why services, entitlements, and other government spending continues to go up, you will always have a deficit. That said deficit will not reverse itself by injecting money or hopium..

40 years of trade imbalance will not be fixed by any model that simply moves money around or borrows from the future. We need fundimental changes, not injections.

Americans need a sobering and honest view of our situation, this is the only thing that could bring about the neccessary change.

100% correct, it's Benny's job to keep the Lemmings marching along until they hit max capacity.  Once you hit max capacity bullshit Helicopter talk does nothing at all but separate the Lemmings that believe in bullshit from the ones that don't.

If someone thinks there hyperinflation going on they need to just tell me where they live and I will be glad to take some worthless paper off their hands.  I will send mucho trucks over.

<Sigh> Mako who's your favourite entrails reader for quantifying M3? 'Cause, sorry to burst your paper bubble but M1 and M2, which are still being reported, are inflating, despite all the egregious deleveraging going on for the last two years. And even the abracadabra'd 'core' CPI, which does everything it can since the 80's to avoid illuminating any actual price increases in the necessities of existence, is now showing, wait for it: price increases. Last time I checked price increases were a symptom of inflation. Go figure.

To wit:

"Today, the Federal Reserve no longer reports M3, which is unfortunate because it eliminates the possibility of accurate historical comparisons.  M3 is estimated by economists by modeling historic trends.  However, these models become less reliable as we move further from February 2006, the date the Federal Reserve stopped reporting M3.  Eurodollars, a major M3 component, is particularly difficult to model.

In any case, much attention is being given to these private estimates, even though the decline in M3 they are reporting stands in marked contrast to M1 and M2.  The Federal Reserve reports that these two money supply measures have grown 7.1% and 1.7% respectively over the past twelve months.  Thus, by these two measures, the dollar is inflating, i.e., the quantity of dollars is expanding – particularly so for M1 – relative to the available stock of goods and services being produced in today’s depressed economy. 

This inflation is also apparent from market prices.  For example, crude oil prices have more than doubled since their post-Lehman crash low.  More broadly, the price index of 19 commodities compiled by the Commodity Research Bureau is up 46% during this same period, which makes clear there is no deflation. " - James Turk

Oh, and if you want my FIAT, you're welcome to it. I would gladly exchange it for some real money (I assume you would offer a price below spot, just to demonstrate your professed confidence). I'd bet that even you know exactly what I mean by 'real money'.

Total credit market debt see FR Z1 report.  You are talking about M1 and M2 and such well those are just a tiny fraction of the system so you are not busting anything.  M1-2 are farts in the wind to the size of the system.  I mean M1 is less than $2T, whoopie do. They system is 35+ times bigger than M1.  Let me see you think all this stuff runs on M1 M2 and M3.  Sorry total credit market debt is $52.1T down from $52.9T, whoops system doesn't run backwards.

The system contracted by $808B from Q1/2009 to Q1/2010, it now stands at $52.1T which  must be serviced, whoops.

"This inflation is also apparent from market prices."

That is not inflation, that is price inflation.  Inflation is negative.

"I'd bet that even you know exactly what I mean by 'real money'"

Real money is whatever two or more people agree to. 

If there is so much fiat, just tell me where to pick it up.  You are setting up a strawman.

Let me know when the Helicopters show up, still waiting.  The fact of the matter is the helicopters were flying for 63 years, they stopped flying in 2007. 

YOu are Ben's favorite type of Lemming, those that believe in Helicopters.

Speaking of 'strawmen' and 'lemmings': Mako, you want to delude yourself that debt is real money, fine. Good luck with that.  For the sake of argument, I'll run with you and your ilk's dupedom of fantasy:

Firstly, note that I stated that price increases are symptomatic of inflation, capiche?

"The fact of the matter is the helicopters were flying for 63 (er, try 97) years, they stopped flying in 2007"... and a fleet of them took off again with a vengence in late 2008 and have been flying worldwide right up to today; there are more warming up on the pads...

If M1 and M2 are such 'teardrops in the rain', why are they defiantly continuing to increase (inflate) in this supposedly deflationary environment?

Why are prices of necessities rising in this supposedly deflationary environment?

Ans. Deflation for you, because you didn't/will-never see any of the bailout trillions, you just get to lose your job. But the plutocrats get all their FIAT for free (or less), and they are spending it like it's goin' out of style (it is) on hard assets, which will always be in vogue (ie have intrinsic value) and as such are much, much more akin to real money. So, it might not be entering the world economy as credit to the same degree as it was pre-2007, but it's still making it out there. Just not into your wallet. 'Cuz they ain't interested in your desire to borrow anymore cous', they've already got you pinned down nicely with debt, slave. Job done.

"The system stands at $52.1T which must be serviced."  

How do you think it will be serviced? Well, whatever YOU owe, YOU will pay out of anything you happen to have left, with hard assets if necessary (most likely 'preferably'), but what you can't pay will be printed ad infinitum, because we all know who isn't going to lose a single decimal of FIAT under any circumstances.

End of.

There is no ambitious "real underlying" economy;anyone interesting in surviving is pulling in horns and other body/financial parts.  U.S. Economy is being systematically starved (Yes: Stalin and Kulaks {intentional analogy}) with malice aforethought.

If you can find the "conventional" democrat response, good luck.  But there is a lefty revolt coming viz. moonbat votes against the drilling ban.

The chart does not go up like an L in 2008... money supply had been going up 7%+ since 1944 on average.  The chart pictured goes basically vertical in one year and appears to be still going up.  This is not happening, it's actually going down. 

http://wallstreetexaminer.com/forums/uploads/monthly_07_2010/post-5034-1...

This chart doesn't show the destruction now happening basically the $800B+ that vaporized and is continuing.  All you lemmings peaked out in 2007, in 2008 lemmings gave up the fight... 2009 collapse of the money supply started and doesn't appear to be wanting to stop anytime soon.

If you believe inflation to infinity you would be buying anything you can get your hands on right now... let me know how that works out.

I know the "Helicopters are coming!".  I am still waiting, tell Benny to send me over 99 Virgins and 12 pack while he is at to.  No helicopters are coming to save you or anybody else.

However, I think "the Chairman" would have a two screen set up.  One for his "punim" with the caption "I am the great and powerful Oz" and the other for all of his market manipulation tools--as well documented by the artist.

that's "ponum." and it had a meaning before Dr. Evil used it.

I'm glad everyone enjoyed it.  And as has been noted, the money supply graph probably should have been labeled 'Fed Balance Sheet', as the money hasn't gotten out into the system yet.

Happy weekend.

Awesome. 

Coming Soon: Helicopter Ben, The Board Game. The possibilities are endless...The obvious spoof would be Monopoly with Ben as Mr Moneybags. Another possibility, however, is Go For Broke or Candyland.

 Have to take the "go directly to jail" card from the Monopoly game for the FED version.

Diagonally across the box cover:

"Now with 5x the Money of the original classic!"

And an advertisement panel that states:

"Have even more fun with the QE bonus money package.  Quintuples the already expanded money supply.  New rules allow player-banker to inject money to favored players at whim!  Never "pretend" $1 are $1000 bills again!*

*QE package sold seperately."

Just in case you're serious:

click on image to enlarge; right click - 'save image as' - save to your desktop; right click the saved file, the second option in the menu is 'set as desktop background'.

If that doesn't work, go to Control Panels, Display and find the background image option among the tabs

Too funny! However, I was convinced, based on Bernanke's history that he was still using MS Dos, which would explain his "Abort, Retry, Ignore" handling of the economy.
