Hmm, do you mean the 'real' money that gets destroyed (for instance) 
every time a loan is payed back? (like in: bank assets minus 
outstanding loan; bank liabilities minus amount payed back from 
checking account (= M1 money).) These are the wonders of double entry 
bookkeeping... 'real' money gone with the push of a button... ;)
