    The money supply of any nation is determined by the number of Treasury securities held by investors, not by the amount of currency that exists. Therefore to expand the money supply, the central (or national) bank, buys more securities. It's called "quantitative easing" http://www.investopedia.com/terms/q/quantitative-e...
