    Thanks for the assignment. This is my first time actually reading through these numbers. It looks like to me about $300 billion has left household money market accounts from 4Q 2002 to 3Q 2003 with $989.9 billion still there. Is there anything else to be considered “money on the sidelines”? And am I reading the numbers correctly?

    It seems to me from this table that savings are increasing this year . Not being placed in the market , but in institutions at a low rate of return . Lack of majority confidence in recent market gains . watch out eh?
