So there have been many articles about inflation. Comments that the US government has been printing money like drunken sailors, compared to Germany after world war 2 etc etc. I pose a question, do we know if they printed the money or not?
An observation from the Federal Reserve web site the following link and graph show that the fed put liquidity into the market and that most of it has now been returned. What I have not been able to determine is, whose balance sheet the shares in the banks, AIG and GM etc are represented? Wouldnt it be nice to see the USA's balance sheet and not just bits of data represented by journalists!
