The amount of money of zero maturity remains at a staggeringly high level – big sign of fear, sign of disengaged investment potential, near historic high percentage of GDP.

Investors remain extremely cautious if MZM is a guide.  There is over $10 trillion of money held in cash and securities of zero maturity.  It’s no wonder economic growth is sluggish.  The good news is this condition is not common at market or economic tops.  A decline in the amount of money sitting idle back toward 50% of GDP would release over $2 trillion of capital into the economy for productive investment.  Jeb Terry, Sr. June 3, 2011
