The Fed’s Balance Sheet:
$8.8 Trillion and Rising

                                       Fed La-La-Land


Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke in 2010:  I think we would like to bring the balance sheet back to something…under a trillion dollars…


Ron Paul: A trillion dollars?


Bernanke. Or less, yes.


                                          Real World


The Fed’s balance sheet was $8.8 trillion on March 9, 2022 – more than double what is was in March 2020. 


Massive Fed intervention in the U.S. economy is a big reason why housing prices rose at the fastest two-year rate of growth in history.


You would be wise to remember there’s no free lunch in economics.  Someone has to pay.
