Does anybody out there have a feel for percentage of new money being generated into the markets (in general) by 401K / 403B funds?

Are there similar retirement vehicles causing new cash to the markets in other economies like Europe and Japan?

My reason for asking is to help justify in my mind the high P/E ratios of growth companies. If there are significant growths in cash that must be added to the market on an annual basis due to government policies, the markets will break old rules valuation as the money has to go somewhere to meet government standards.

I am a brand new fool that appreciates any insight available on this topic.

Regards,
uttoh
