Fed balance sheet

Quote :
... Central Banks purchased $1 trillion of assets in just the first four months of the year. However, they did one better as they added another half trillion in May… LOL:



So, the total for the first five months of the year, is a staggering $1.5 trillion. Also, we can see that the Central bank balance sheet is now $15.1 trillion, up from $3.5 trillion before the 2008 U.S. Housing Market and Banking collapse.

How long can the Fed sustain this?

The really scary thing to think about is that the current rate of asset purchases appears to be accelerating while the economy is more or less treading water. If China implodes (economically) as is being suggested as possible in some quarters, just how much more would the Fed need to amp things up to mitigate the ripples?

As long as it can be created from thin air and enforced by making other forms of exchange illegal, the amount created is not hugely relevant.

And we don't really know how much more is being discretely created and moved into foreign accounts in order to keep the show on the road.

Crypto currencies seem to be a good indicator of loss of faith in fiats but do not have the scalability to replace the fiat scam.

It requires a genuine black swan event that no one saw coming, to crash it all.

Perhaps the much speculated 'controlled demolition' could be triggered by a false flag black swan ?

I read the quoted article a bit too quickly. The asset purchases are a total for the Fed, ECB, Boj, BoE and SNB. It's not all on the Fed's shoulders. Whew! I feel so much better...

What you see, is what is on the books.
Lord only knows the extent of subsidiary asset purchasers, armed with digital or preordained currency, are purchasing or about to buy.
Many faces we never see, many.

Holding at a loss is not a loss, when you own it ALL.

Addendum: The majority remains absent, in the shadow of a phone, under a mountain of debt, quelling their superego demands with complacency.

Yeah even piss poor collateral is still worth something and ultimately every loan is backed, at least in theory, by something.

So when it all collapses, its the money issuers who end up owning everyone and everything that involved credit .....

Rinse and repeat with a bright shiny new SDR or whatever they choose to call the new world currency that will 'save us all' .........

Perhaps the majority think the way forward is to borrow as much as you can, while you can ? Who can blame them ? They've been 'educated' into this mindset.

I have two offspring, they are both motivated and enterprising. One has always borrowed to the maximum, the other saves up and buys when they have enough saved.
The jury is out on who has the best lifestyle and what happens when TSHTF.

China is too big to fail, we'll bail 'em out.
(btw, the Russians did it)

Do you ever wonder if China isn't simply seeing what USSA does and copies ?
It was their way in the past as they copied other countries products.

Just poor copyists but good at doing it in greater quantities.

Why not maintain as much 'quantitive easing' as you can get away with, based on what the opposition is doing .....

but hedge your activity with something that cannot be printed or ignored ?
