Fed Prints Money to Fight COVID19: M1 and M2

The chart shows the sharp increase in US "money supply: upon Senate approval of a $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package

Money Supply: There are two definitions of money: M1 and M2 money supply. M1 money supply includes those monies that are very liquid such as cash, checkable (demand) deposits, and traveler’s checks M2 money supply is less liquid in nature and includes M1 plus savings and time deposits, certificates of deposits, and money market funds.

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) and associated economic advisers meet regularly to assess the U.S. money supply and general economic condition. If it is determined if, and how much, new money needs to be created.


traveler’s checks are yet considered liquid (no airoplanes on the blue sky :D)) these should be subject to change!! the funny fact just caught my interest.
While checking these numbers and growth, only the traded value of bonds came to my attention and the change a yield increase and its effect on bond. money stays theoretically printed but practically just rolled over on same base.
About the printing, i would not seek how much more will be printed but how long it will keep doing it.for now it seems like till covid over. post covid only a war can justify it i guess (not a social dynamics expert so not good at finding the reasons)
