M2 Money Velocity (GDP/M2 Money) peaked in Q3 1997, but after several bouts of Fed money printing, M2 Money Velocity is near the all-time low at 1.1216 In Q1 2022. And M2 Money stock is still growing at a torrid pace of 9.9% YoY. But the massive overreaction of The Federal Reserve in response to the Covid outbreak has led to near zero money velocity.
Now with The Federal Reserve considering removing the monetary stimulus, what will happen to US GDP left to survive on its own?
An example of how The Fed’s expected tightening of monetary policy can be seen in the meteoric rise in mortgage rates.
So, the US has hit terminal money velocity. I wish The Fed lots of luck going forward.
