  The St. Petersburg Times - Business - Expanding Cash Base Is Fueling Price Rises
Consumer prices are up nearly 10 percent since the start of the year and the money base - the sum of cash in circulation and obligatory reserves of commercial banks held by the Central Bank - is up 5.9 percent to 550 billion rubles ($18.9 billion), according to official figures.
Even though most of the money printing occurred in the second half of 2000, its effects were not felt until the start of the year, with the process appearing to be gathering steam.
Money velocity, which measures the number of transactions serviced by 1 ruble of cash on an annual basis, is up to 6.55 from 6.0 at the end of last year.

  Money Laundering Working Group Report- Federal Sentencing Guidelines (2/28/95)
In contrast to white collar cases, in which a money laundering count nearly always increased the applicable offense level, the working group found that in drug cases the money laundering offense level was higher than that for the underlying drug trafficking conduct about half the time and was lower the other half.
In many cases, money laundering defendants were initially charged with participating in the underlying criminal conduct but the counts charging the underlying criminal conduct were apparently dropped in connection with a plea bargain.
The base offense levels provided for in proposed subsections (a)(2) and (a)(3) are increased as the amount of the laundered funds increases to ensure that the greater the scope of the money laundering activity, the greater the sentence.

 Plain Money
Non-cash money exists as sight deposits on bank accounts (which are used by the public and the banks among themselves) and as noncash reserves on central bank accounts (which have to be used by the banks in settling their payments to other banks at different locations and abroad).
Money is a functional tool made of value-informational units, similar to a vocabulary made of meaningful words of which it is in fact a special case.
The money base is the monetary ”material” by which the money supply is fed. The supply of money in the broadest sense would be identical with either side of the equation of exchange.

 Money Laundering Working Group Summary - Federal Sentencing Guidelines (2/95)
Some commentators asserted that guideline sentences in money laundering cases were often disproportionately high relative to the seriousness of the offense and, because of inconsistent charging practices by the government, led to unwarranted sentencing disparity.
To test the assertion that the money laundering conduct was incidental to, or part of, the underlying crime, the working group examined relevant case files to determine both the underlying offense that generated the proceeds and the nature of the money laundering conduct.
The money laundering offense level was higher than the underlying conduct's offense level in 52.5 percent of the drug cases and in 96.0 percent of the non-drug cases.

 Money market funds -- rising rates
Money market mutual funds are often used by people with brokerage accounts as a short-term holding place for money that's waiting to be invested in stocks, bonds or mutual funds.
In that environment there can be a tendency to pay little attention to the expense ratio, but for anyone using a money fund as a place to keep his or her emergency fund, the expense ratio is an important consideration.
When it comes to yields, money funds are no competition for high yield money market accounts, many of which currently offer better than 2 percent.

 Monetary base - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In economics, the monetary base, or the money base (often called narrow money in the UK) is a term relating to the volume of money in the economy, or money supply.
As such, it is a narrow definition of money supply, consisting of only the most liquid forms of money.
Wider definitions of the money supply include the public's bank deposits and are therefore larger in volume and encompass money of a lower liquidity.

 Money supply - T2W Traderpedia
Money supply can be defined as the quantity of money available within an economy available to purchase goods, services, and securities.
Because (in principle, anyway) money is anything that can be used in settlement of a debt, there are varying measures of money supply.
The supply of money can only increase if the money is first "printed" by the issuer of money, usually the government central bank or treasury.

 Money base - Definition, explanation
The money base, or the monetary base is a government liability, currency and bank reserves.
Since the second half of the eighties the notion of amorphous "reserves" underlying the money base was consistently presented as an axiom-type statement, which, however contradicts the actual incidents underlying the separation of current monetary system from gold.
Many economists fear that money base is increasingly diluted, thus the quantifiable "reserves" in the world monetary system today are in essence amount of (mostly) unsecured debt.

 Women & The Economy - Who Makes Money?
Money "as good as gold" based on or "derived from" an actual store of gold, began circulating in values much greater than the gold in storage - money that was created out of nothing by transactions of credit and debt.
He noted that not only solid things, like cattle, beaver pelts and gold were money, but that the promise to pay any of those things - the banker's notes, that were essentially a promise to pay out in those real things (if required) - were everywhere also recognized as money.
Money is constantly appearing as new debt and constantly vanishing as retired old debt.

 The Fed and Money Supply
Money velocity, the ratio of nominal GDP to the M2 measure of money, tracks the turnover of money in the economy and, by implication, money’s impact on gross domestic product (GDP).
Although this general slowdown in money growth occurred prior to the Fed’s latest rate increase, the pattern is entirely consistent with the Fed’s desire to move its monetary stance from stimulus toward neutrality.
The money multiplier, for instance, is roughly in line with where it has hovered since the mid 1990s, suggesting that the broader aggregates, in this case M2, are roughly in line with the behavior of the monetary base.

Almost all of the fall in the money supply resulted from a fall in the money multiplier, not the monetary base.
The money supply growth rate (both base and M2) was high during the first 4 years of Roosevelt's administration, but M2 growth turned negative for a second stretch when reserve requirements were increased in 1937.
Based almost entirely on Hoover's opposition to the dole (note that evidence of negative consequences on British economy were already evident), and the fact that FDR took the policies considerably further.

 The Monetary Base
A private enterprise with sufficient financial capital may obtain a charter that permits it to accept deposits of base money from the public, and to issue loans in the form of credit convertible to base money on demand.
The Fed's base money liabilities are closely matched by its assets in the form of Treasury securities that it previously bought from the public.
Since base money is a monopoly of the State, the Fed must issue enough to avoid a shortage of what the public must use to pay its taxes.

 Money Basics
In the era of commodity money, the issuer was constrained by the need to hold a sufficient supply of the underlying commodity.
The value of fiat money therefore depends on the policies and actions of the issuer, normally the central bank of a country.
The general acceptance of the government’s fiat money derives from its status as legal tender and from the fact that it is required in payment of federal taxes.

 Bush's Requests for Iraqi Base Funding Make Some Wary of Extended Stay
Questions on Capitol Hill about the future of the bases have been prompted by the new emergency spending bill for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, which overwhelmingly passed the House of Representatives last week with $67.6 billion in funding for the war effort, including the base money.
Although the House approved the measure, lawmakers are demanding that the Pentagon explain its plans for the bases, and they unanimously passed a provision blocking the use of funds for base agreements with the Iraqi government.
These large bases are being built at the same time that hundreds of millions of dollars are being spent on separate bases for the growing Iraqi military.

 High-powered money - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
High-powered money is a macroeconomic term referring to the monetary base, or money supply, which is controlled by the institution in a country that controls monetary policy.
The monetary base is called high-powered because the magnitude of changes in monetary base are greatly magnified by the money multiplier.
As an example, a 1% increase in monetary base may lead to a 10% increase in the money supply due to money multipler effects.

 Money
My friend maintained that money is only a means of exchange and does not represent anything at all in and of itself; that it is only a mutually agreed upon medium of exchange.
What disturbs me about the idea that money has value only because we all mutually agree that it does, is the fear that society in general might revise its opinion downward of the value of the money I've worked all my life to acquire.
That is far different than having a fixed amount of gold bullion in a bank and being able to visit that bank whenever you wish to exchange your paper IOU for the metal itself, or for whatever commodity is being held in reserve for you.

 RBA:RDP8203 The Causal Relationship between Money Base and Money Supply in Australia: 1960-1979
Controversy has centred around a number of issues, including: the exogeneity of the money base; the substitutability of cash and other liquid assets in the management of bank's reserves; the causal significance of the budget deficit of the consolidated government sector relative to imported disturbances; and the appropriate definition of the money base in Australia.
These changes are likely to have altered both the time series properties of the monetary aggregates and may also have changed the observed relationship between various measures of money base and the money stock.
The results are in some cases conflicting due to the stringent techniques for determining causality but we conclude: there is evidence of considerable instability in the money multiplier for most concepts of money base during the 60s and 70s.
