Sui rischi dell’inflazione degli stock di ricchezza finanziaria

After the great crisis of 2007-2008, the average stock prices of financial wealth (stocks and securities) on the major stock markets have been characterized by a continuous growth that the economists are still struggling to explain. In this paper we propose an interpretation and a subsequent empirical review of the phenomenon that is based on a complete re-formulation of the quantum theory of the money. According to it, wealth stock inflation is an indirect effect of an excess of production capacity in the real economy and the associated process of creating new money.
