Money Supplies of the World, Continued.

In Money Supply on March 20, 2011 by CQCA

Continuing from yesterday, the top twenty through forty countries by GDP and their five year monetary inflation is shown in the chart above.  The lead inflator is Venezuela, at over 300%.

In 1998, before Hugo Chavez was elected president, the extended broad money (M3) supply stood at 10.6 billion Bolivars.  In 2010, twelve years later but with the same president, the Venezuelan money supply stood at an estimated 292.0 billion Bolivars.

Only one of these countries, Thailand, expanded its money supply by less than 50% over five years.
