The Heisenberg Uncertainty Theory of Money


One can either determine how much money there is, where it is at, or the velocity and direction at which it is moving but not all of them at the same time.

The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle:

It is impossible to have a particle that has an arbitrarily well-defined position and momentum simultaneously.

The Uncertainty Principle Applied To Money:

By observing or attempting to observe money you alter where it is and/or the velocity at which it is traveling depending on whether or not you are watching with one eye or two. One can either determine how much money there is, where it is at, or the velocity and direction at which it is moving but not all of them at the same time.

This is complicated by the fact that watching is an aggregate thing, not an individual thing. Where money is and how fast it is traveling is influenced by everyone's attempt to watch it.

Too many people are watching Bernanke's helicopter drop right now which explains why money turns up in mysterious places like the pockets of those working for Goldman Sachs rather than blowing in the breezes or floating around in thin air as logic would dictate.

If people would just stop watching, there would soon be a pile of bills accumulating in everyone's backyard via wind-blown forces instead of the pockets of Goldman Sachs (GS), Merrill Lynch (MER), and Google (GOOG) employees.

Bernanke, being the hero that he is, has tried hard to defeat this travesty of justice by eliminating M3 reporting but so far it does not seem to be working. Somehow I think Bart at Now and Futures is the problem for Reconstructing M3. There are simply too many people still watching M3 that money does not flow to those who desperately need it.

Thanks to Blue Wire Studio for capturing Bernanke in action.
