Please discuss issues related to Money Supply and the Federal Reserve on this thread.
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York provides much information about the operation of the Fed.
Eventually, I hope we'll be able to agree on the facts surrounding the creation of the Federal Reserve, and then move on to the more nebulous issues of who controls the Federal Reserve now, and how the Federal Reserve's management of the Money Supply affects the economy and most importantly the equity markets.
Some posts worth looking at-
The creation of the Modern Banking system is discussed extensively in a series of posts by glenn_a that start at post # 4 Message 17855776
There's a link in this post by UnBelievable to the Secrets of The Federal Reserve a treatise by Eustance Mullins.
Finally, as the moderator has been known to ban some individuals who may have much to contribute to a discussion of this subject, grusum9 (10eyes) has created an alernative un-moderated thread where rancor and freedom-of-speech will be welcome.
Here's the original header-
Today, August 8th, Reuters Market News released the Money Supply data for the week ended July 29th.
Looking back, the following data was available for the M-2 money supply.
w/e July 08th reduced by $6.3 billion
w/e July 15th increased by $17.3 billion
w/e July 22nd increased by $15.4 billion
w/e July 29th increased by $28.4 billion
That adds up to an increase of $54.8 billion in July.
Is it just me, or does that seem like a lot of money created?
Where'd it go?
I took these figures from this site
That's enough intro.
Does anyone out there know anything about Money Supply and the Fed?
