A Simple Explanation of a Serious Problem
Written by Daniel Nicolas. Posted on February 5th 2009

There is a formula for Fiat Currency, a Fractional Reserve Monetary System, which is what we here in the United States, and most of the world operates as fractional reserve monetary system as well.

Ms=Mor^(N)

Iím just going to quote most of this because itís a very good explanation of a very serious problem. Leraconteur has given a very thorough explanation and quite a number of people are watching this very closely. I recommend reading that entire thread a few times to get the whole picture:

Ms=Mor^(N)

Ms = Money Supply
Mor = Prior Money Supply (This is NOT M0, M ZERO)
N (Vm) = Velocity of money.

Mo Mor = original aggregate money supply
Ms = Money supply AFTER adding in velocity of money.
This is just a shorthand to show that if Vm<1 then output is less than input.

MULT = Vm
Vm = GDP/MZM

H = Ms or total monetary base

MZM is what M3 was.

MZM = &#931; currency in circulation + checkable deposits + traveler's checks + savings deposits, time deposits less than $100,000 and money market deposit accounts for individuals + large time deposits, institutional money-market funds, short-term repurchase agreements, along with other larger liquid assets.

M2 = &#931; currency in circulation + checkable deposits + traveler's checks + savings deposits, time deposits less than $100,000 and money market deposit accounts for individuals .

M1 = &#931; currency in circulation + checkable deposits + traveler's checks.

M0 = &#931; currency (notes and coins) in circulation and in bank vaults.

M0 is the physical stuff
Ms=Mor^(N)

This equation cannot be changed. It is the foundation of a monetary system.

FOMC policy has, up until this year, been to take actions that modify (N). Now they are modifying Mo and Ms, as the Federal reserve has lost control of (N).

N>=1, money supply grows or stagnates, velocity increases or maintains money supply.
N<1, money supply shrinks.
Here is a simpler way of thinking of it:

Think of the M1 multiplier as the internal exchange rate for the US dollar.

When a fiat currency system works fine, you get inflation.

Put a dollar into the economy through the CB or Federal Reserve, and it creates XX worth of new debt, new GDP, as it works its way through the economy. Until recently this figure was 3 or 2 or 1.7.

What we have now is we put $1 into the economy, but we are only getting 88.5 cents out. As we pump more, we get less, and our ROI drops to below par. Worse, the pumping itself accelerates the tendency to get less back for each buck sent out into the economy. To correct this they pump even more out, but they get an even lower return on that.

If you spent a dollar, but only received back .885 worth of goods, if you handed a dollar to the bank clerk and they gave you change and it was 88 cents, what would you do? How would this affect your economic behavior?

Take it to the extreme. Ben Bernanke pumps out a dollar, but gets back one penny of monetary activity. So to sustain a money supply of 900B, he needs to have 90T in the money supply.

This causes the system to reset, and by that I mean that the monetary system ceases to function as more money is created, but less usable money ends up in the system, forcing the creation of more money, and the feedback loop goes round and round.

To fix this the debt must clear the system. This means Ben has to let many banks fail, and get the sound ones to lend. Debt must be defaulted, balance sheets exposed, Mark to Market on all asset classes.

Otherwise what will happen is that FOMC and Ben will pump trillions into the economy, with rapidly diminishing returns, ending up at a point of monetary reset, dollar devaluation, or US Sovereign Debt default.
When N=ZERO, the result is monetary reset, dollar devaluation, or US Sovereign Debt default.

Here is the current chart, released today:



Below is the extrapolation, with average decline in N (since it fell off the cliff) being 0.055 per reporting period:
(Note that these are linear extrapolations: this means if it continues at the current rate, these are the numbers we will see.)

Thatís very bad news. When N=ZERO, the result is monetary reset, dollar devaluation, or US Sovereign Debt default.

Karl Denninger gave an explanation called ďUh OhÖ Monetary Flat SpinĒ.

Because all money is in fact debt; this is inherent in all modern monetary systems.

When Bernanke ďcreatesĒ money he is doing so against an asset - that is, he is issuing debt. A Federal Reserve Note (whether electronic or paper) is in fact effectively a bond of zero maturity and indefinite expiration against the future tax collection capacity of The United States.

That is, itís a treasury bond (via a circuitous route)

The paradox that Bernanke is in danger of discovering (the hard way) is the paradox of a pilot who finds himself in a flat spin. As the ground approaches he wants to pull back on the stick but if he does so, the spin simply tightens as the wings are not producing lift - the angle of attack is too high, not too low. As such if he does what his brain screams at him to do instinctively, he dies.

Or the scuba diver who sucks on the reg and gets nothing. Your instinct is to hold your breath and kick for the surface. If you do it you die.

In both cases your only hope of survival is to do exactly the opposite of your instinct. In the case of the pilot you must not only give counter-rudder (to stop the rotation) but also push the stick forward. In the case of the diver you must exhale that last breath you have in your lungs, knowing there are no more in the tank while you kick to ascend.

If you succumb to instinct you are dead. Really dead, as in splat (or exploded lungs.)

Bernanke is effectively in the same box. The foundation of his entire thesis as a banker is that a central bank can always reverse a deflation by printing money. Unfortunately as he has done so velocity has fallen and the multiplier has now gone below 1. If this induces him to do even more of what caused this decrease there is a very real risk that the actual market reaction will be to tighten the monetary flat spin.

This is because the underlying problem in the economy isnít the lack of debt (money) in the system. It is that there is too much debt of all sorts, and since money is in fact a form of debt, you canít fix the problem by playing helicopter drop!
So what happens when monetary reset, dollar devaluation, or US Sovereign Debt default happens?

Think Iceland.

The 2008Ė2009 Icelandic financial crisis is a major ongoing economic crisis in Iceland that involves the collapse of all three of the countryís major banks following their difficulties in refinancing their short-term debt and a run on deposits in the United Kingdom. Relative to the size of its economy, Icelandís banking collapse is the largest suffered by any country in economic history.

The financial crisis has had serious consequences for the Icelandic economy; the national currency has fallen sharply in value, foreign currency transactions were virtually suspended for weeks, the market capitalization of the Icelandic stock exchange has dropped by more than 90%, and a severe economic recession is expected.

But wait letís think about it. Iceland is a small, peaceful (and very cold) country. The United States is not. When our creditors come to collect, I do not think it will end peacefully with the sale of the United Statesí assets. It seems, for the moment, war is inevitable.

It shows he has 1 person who agrees with him.

The other seven voices in his head are scumbag liberals.

I have said all along they are crashing the dollar. God forbid I actually back it up with evidence from a real economist? If this information doesn't wake you up, then please go back to your daily dose of Obama Kool-aid. Good luck to you and your family when the dollar crashes. History is repeating itself and this is proof that we are on our way to complete disaster. Please go back to your regularly scheduled program on NBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX, etc.
