The means by which entities, as government agencies, as the Federal Reserve, Department of the Treasury, and institutions as the central bank, control the supply of money (M1, M3). This process includes trading in foreign exchange markets.

Monetary policy can but viewed in its two forms: expansionary and contractionary. Expansionary policy increases the total money supply (liquidity) and is used to fight unemployment or recessionary pressures, mainly by lowering interest rates. Direct cash infusions to struggling private institutions or government rebates to individuals can be used as emergency measures to avoid panic runs on banks as was seen in the 1929 market crash. These measures are very dangerous and are considered highly inflationary and destabilizing to currency exchange rates. Economic theory would indicate that such uncontrolled printing of money, indicates failure of fiscal policy (which refers to government borrowing, spending, and taxation).

Contractionary policy is used to control inflation by raising interest rates. A "perfect storm" scenario would be when a government "should be" using a contractionary policy and resorts to an expansionary policy.
The world is very critical of the monetary policy of the United States and is punishing it by devaluing its currency.

The space-time concept is the most difficult to explain or understand in the entirety of human knowledge. We perceive reality in terms of up and down, left and right, even jokes are made like: "He doesn't know up from down." For we view things in relativistic terms, and dualisms. Does up exist by itself? Does left exist by itself? Are they continuum's? Can an event exist as a non-event. Are space and time inseparable dualities? How many dimensions are there--one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, then eleven. Black holes, white holes event horizon, helix, super galactic, sub-atomic, worldlines. string-like, super-strings, quarks, gluon's, tachyons, big-bang, big-bang plus 1 x 10 minus 18th second. An event in terms of x,y, and z with respect to a rotational helix with a velocity equal to c on the worldline so long as it occurs outside the event-horizon and stays within the worldline. That's why they messed up the Philadelphia experiment.
You are playing God when you mess with the space-time continuum.

When you realize that all the money you had been socking away into investments, has already been spent by someone else. Also, that you would have been better off to have spent it all on really dumb stuff like a Corvette, motorcycles, boats, all sorts of big-boy toys; now all you have is basically, nothing.
I just retired and looked at my investments and had my Madoff moment.
