How Much Actual Money is There on Earth?

Quirkily presented, this video summarises pretty well, as much as can be done in 15 minutes, what has resulted from the aggressive spread and imposition of western free market economic theory and policies based on cold war game theory and unsustainable economic growth models, in relation to the banking and finance sectors and therefore, the monetary system as we know it today.

As to how the monetary system has evolved, through human engineering and intervention or organically or, of course, the balance in favour of one over the other, is a related yet completely different kettle of fish and widely open to debate.
