Changes in the Money Supply in Vegas Vacation

by AdrianFohr

Several Questions to consider: 1.) What would happen if everyone in the economy saved by burying money? 2.) What happens to the money supply as Cousin Eddie Saves; and, what happens then again after he digs the money back up? 3.) Is there an opportunity cost to saving money in this way?

Vegas Money Supply

Cousin Eddie takes his savings and buries the money in metal coffee tins in the desert. When Clark Griswold losses all of his cash in Las Vegas, Eddie decides it is time to dig up the money to help Clark out.
