MZM (the big boyz money supply) and M2 (the broad household money supply) have stabilized in the past few weeks. YOY M3 (the calculated money supply) is still growing faster than the GDP and faster than the inflation rate.

If the definition of inflation is an increase in money supply, then how can money supply increase faster than inflation?
