Global Money Supply Data
There are several different monetary aggregates used to measure a nation's money supply. These monetary aggregates can be thought of as forming a continuum from most liquid (money as a means of exchange) to the least liquid (money as a store of value).
We have compiled available data for the most commonly used measures (M0, M1, M2 and M3) from 135 currencies from 167 countries as indicated in the following figure.
Three of the five monetary unions can be clearly seen above. The remaining two are the IEOM which uses the French Pacific Franc in three member countries, and the East Caribbean Currency Union which uses the East Caribbean Dollar in eight member countries.
The following graph shows the growth of money supply since 1971, a year selected for the reason that the last remaining currency to be convertible to gold, the US dollar, was made inconvertible on Aug 15, 1971.
