The Japanese economy is officially in a recession when measured in YENâ¦ BUT, their economy is BOOMING when measured in dollars! The American economy is not yet officially in a recession when measured in dollars, but the American economy is mired in a depression when measured with the Yen or the Yuan!!! Glancing at the charts today I was flummoxedâ¦ Weâre having a credit crises, yet the money supply is still increasing at a faster rate than other currencies? This is the biggest scam of all time! Not a news flash to the ET community, but would it not make sense to measure the economic activity in terms of the money supply. That way we don't confuse the money supply increase/decrease with the economic activity increase/decrease???
