Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Cash is a part of the consolidated government debt.

Or, to put it in another way: Government bonds are a part of the money supply.

With a properly run central bank, cash and government bonds held by own residents contribute precisely equally to society's gearing: Not at all. (Foreign government bonds are different.)
