Scary-Ass Chart of the Day

September 18th, 2013 - 5:07 am

M1 GDP1

M1 money supply to real GDP growth since 1958.

That huge excess, all generated since 2008, eventually has to be hoovered back out of the economy, unless we want to suffer an inflation to make 1979 look like 1929.

Of course, that’s contingent on the return of robust economic growth, so then again maybe we’re safe.

I remember the 70s. I also remember losing nearly 1/6th of my earning power per year.

I hated the 70s. Economically, anyway.

I remember it, too. Ugly time. The interest rate for a new home with good credit was 18+%! Jobs were scarce, like now. And inflation was so brutal, even the liberal Press was complaining of the "stagflation". Remember that word? Stagnant economy + high inflation. Stagflation. The only reason we do not use it now, is that the economy is not stagnant; It is sinking, which prevents huge inflation.
