The Real Weight of QE2

In "Bulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, Pigs Get Slaughtered" Anthony Gallea quoted momentum investors as, "believ[ing] that a body in motion tends to stay in motion," underneath a section entitled 'Don't Fight the Fed.'

So, what is the LITERAL mass of a body of money that big?   $1 million in 100s with no straps, suitcases or any other objects other than the bills themselves weighs 20.4 lbs.  Ratcheting that up to $600 billion worth of cash leaves us with a total weight of 12,240,000 lbs (yes MILLION).  I’d say that’s a body in motion that will be near impossible to stop.
