The 'velocity of money' is a calculation that shows the relationship between money supply and real economic activity as a ratio. It is falling to new lows. Some might even use the word 'plummet.' There is lots of new money, but not so much real activity. The standard economic answer would be that the US is in a liquidity trap, and the recovery will have lags in employment gains. The money is added, and then recovery follows, with employment showing the longest delay. The standard remedy would be to create more jobs, artificially if necessary.
