How much money is there, in the world?

I don't know about printed money, but if you mean economic "worth", according to Wikipedia, the IMF lists the Gross World Product at 48,144,466,000,000 US dollars. (The World Bank estimates it slightly higher, at $48,244,879,000,000.)
Both lists are missing a couple of countries, including some which might be quite rich (Monaco, Vatican City, e.a.), so maybe add 1-2% to the total.

That's an interesting thread . . .

I got an email not long ago. You put your annual earnings into a little text field and it told you were you stood in terms of the world. I was interested to note that I am in the top ten percent.

That doesn't say much though . . .
