Federal Reserve Balance Sheet

September 10, 2009

 

Ever wondered what the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet looks like?  Take a look:

You can see that the Federal Reserve pumped almost $1.2 trillion into the economy in the last year.  And it’s still growing, but at a slower rate.  Last week the balance sheet grew by $6.3 billion. 

I won’t even pretend to be able to analyze all of this.  Just thought you’d be interested.
