Federal Reserve Balance Sheet Explodes

The Federal Reserve's balance sheet continues to explode.

As of November 13th, 2008 the Total Factors Supplying Reserve Funds have expanded to $2 250 204 000 000 ($2.250 TRILLION). That's an increase of $142 371 000 000 ($142.371 BILLION) from LAST WEEK.

Click on the chart to enlarge the magically enlarging balance sheet.

If you're wondering where the money is coming from and where it is going, take a look at the Really Scary Fed Charts: NOV, US Bankrupt? for a clue.

In comparison, TARP is a mere $700 billion total (currently). As of November 12, 2008, $290 billion of the first $350 billion allotment funding TARP has been allocated: $250 billion for bank equity infusions, and $40 billion for an equity infusion into insurer American International Group (AIG).

Paulson's bailout money. which is overseen by Neel Kashkari, the Treasury official in charge of the bail-out, a 35 yr old guy. $700 billion, since when does a 35 yr old man (through life experiences) know how to manage $700 Billion? Seems like he keeps throwing money at places that don't need it. because it's not helping anything. but if the money had gone down to the people or simply payoff everyones credit cards , student loans, car loans etc. eventually the people would turn around and run up their credit as high or higher in a few years.
but then again that would encourage people to never payoff debt, because the treasury would bail them out. mis-management of money is rewarded with a bailout of money from the treasury (as approved by congress to be passed down to generations of taxpayers via tax increases), to allow continued mis-management of money.

oh, wait that just happened didn't it?
AIG, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae.

I don't think these treasury clowns (and I am being nice) really know what they are doing. I am not saying I could do better, but I'd at least be consulting a panel of economists as to what the hell i should do.

is this rocket science? or am i being too naive? I know it's a very complex subject. I am not into finance or macro economics but good gosh. I sincerely think some people in charge are completely out of touch with this real world.

Hey Ben,

The Fed is flooding the Commercial paper market, valued at roughly $1.6trillion.

Another really shocking part of this release is the Fed's holding of commercial paper, listed as "Net portfolio holdings of Commercial Paper Funding Facility LLC (6)." In just two short weeks, the Fed has bought $250 billion in commercial paper (net). This is roughly 15% of the money market ($1.6 trillion).

Great, let's have 35 yo Neel Kashkari, an engineer (BS AND MS) with an MBA in charge of the bailout package. Sounds very reassuring and creates confident in the market.... Sounds like the taxpayers are being PUNKED. Lacking a degree in economics, I doubt this guy understands the fundamental problems of the economic system. Probably why the bailout plan keeps changing. He's an easy target for the corporations and giving GMAC Financial Services $5 billion just shows complete misjudgment. So far 62 banks have received approval for TARP (soon to be >100). When will I get some?

eh said...

Why does this matter? Will it endanger the status of their notes as 'legal tender for all debts, public and private'? Will buyers no longer show up to government debt auctions? I think this is rather arcane and the answer to both of those questions is no. So in principle the Fed could expand its balance sheet ad infinitum and not affect the aforementioned confidence.

Examine the soles of your shoes. Note where UGG Mini wear has occurred. Most people seem to be amazed that their shoes wear at the rear outer corner. Most UGG Mini boots rearfoot strikers will wear at this part of the shoe. The reason for this, which someday, somewhere a funded study will prove, is that for most heel strikers it is the point Mini ugg boots of first contact of the shoe with the ground. Most people walk and run with their feet slightly rotated from center. Runners, however, also have what is called a narrow base Mini uggs of gait. A narrow base of gait means that the feet contact close to the midline of your body. This creates additional varus (tilting in) of the limb. This results, for the rearfoot striker, in the first point hitting the ground being the outer corner of your shoe. Forefoot wear ugg 5854 may point to an individual who is a sprinter, runs fast, contacts the ground with the forefoot first or all of the above. Uneven forefoot wear may show where one metatarsal is plantarflexed relative to the others or where one metatarsal may be longer than the others.
