Bart, Finster,

In a prior post Finster mentioned something about defining inflation as a ratio of the money stock to population. Here are some charts from Bart's data.

The first chart is M3 growth, at 6.95% per annum for 107 years.

The second chart is the per capita dollar decline at 5.27% per annum for the last 107 years.

The third chart is the population growth at 1.29% per annum.

The final chart is the growth of M3 per capita at 5.58% for the last 107 years.

Well Finster, you are right. No wonder the Fed is keeping the prime rate at 5.25% that is close to the dollar decline per annum per capita for the Federal Reserve Monetary Unit by under two basis points!

What do you gentlemen think? Let me know your thoughts.

Also, thanks again for the data Bart.

Cheers,
