In the sound-money community there is universal skepticism about the Fed’s plan to stop monetizing the world’s debt. Hardly anyone thinks they’ll go through with it and absolutely no one thinks they’ll succeed if they do.
But the Fed is acting like it’s serious. Take a look at the monetary base, which is the amount of new currency that’s been created and pumped into the banking system. The trajectory since the 2008 crash tells you all you need to know about the “recovery,” which turned out to be just the Fed printing money and a few mostly rich people spending some of it. But check out the far right edge where the line turns negative. Not wildly negative, but still, the Fed does appear to have stopped adding and started subtracting. The money supply is falling.
