Quantitative Easing Returns to Japan

Quietly, without fanfare, the Federal Reserve has turned on the printing presses.  The central bank is flooding the market with enough excess liquidity to refloat the banking system — and hopes to generate an upturn in both economic activity and inflation in the next 12-18 months to prevent the economy falling into a prolonged slump. Since the banking crisis intensified in September, the Fed has been rapidly expanding the credit side of its balance sheet, providing an ever-increasing array of facilities to support the financial system (repos, term auction credit, primary discount credit, broker-dealer credit, commercial ...
were major factors leading to changes in the system. Its duties today, according to official Federal Reserve documentation, fall into four general categories: 3 Conducting the nation's monetary policy by influencing monetary and credit conditions in the economy in pursuit of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates. Supervising and regulating banking institutions to ensure the safety and soundness of the nation's banking and financial system, and protect the credit rights of consumers. Maintaining stability of the financial system and containing systemic risk that may arise in financial ...

Comstock: Liquidity Trap Means QE Will Fail As Private Sector ...
Debt is discussed by the pundits on financial TV also, but in almost every case the discussion revolves around government deficits relative to GDP or government debt relative to GDP.  They are constantly comparing the U.S. government debt to every other country in the world (especially Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, and Spain-PIIGS).  We believe that the government debt should be taking a back seat to the private debt which is much larger and must eventually be deleveraged. The private debt is about 6 times larger than our government’s public debt; about 4 times larger than our government’s gross debt ... market research, surveys and trends
Is the Fed Happy with the Crappy Economy? « naked capitalism
Is the economics version of defining deviancy downward mean that the new normal of high unemployment and inadequate job growth is seen as acceptable by policymakers (at least those not up for re-election this November)? It’s one thing to recognize that we are working through a painful hangover after a private sector borrowing binge that produced a global financial crisis. It’s quite another to be complacent about bad conditions and steer clear of possible remedies. The Fed unfortunately has been widely lauded for its emergency responses during the crisis (a view I do not share, but we’ll put that aside for now) ... market research, surveys and trends

In a hole
THERE is an old joke about a stranger who asks a local for directions and gets the cheerful reply: “If I wanted to go there, I wouldn’t start from here.” That advice sums up the dilemma the developed countries face in dealing with their debt. They have accumulated a mountain of it at every level, from the personal to the corporate and the sovereign. As this special report has shown, this was encouraged by a legal system that sheltered debtors, a corporate and financial sector that used debt to boost its returns and a cultural change that made it more respectable. Central banks and governments implicitly guaranteed this debt, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

financial crisis that began nearly three years ago has caused great hardship for people in many parts of the world and represented the most profound challenge to central banks since the Great Depression.

In the United States, we lowered the federal funds rate target to a range of 0 to 1/4 percent to help mitigate the economic downturn; we expanded the scale, scope, and maturity of our lending to provide needed liquidity to financial institutions and to ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Thinking about the liquidity trap
We live in the Age of the Central Banker - an era in which Greenspan, Duisenberg, and Hayami are household words, in which monetary policy is generally believed to be so effective that it cannot safely be left in the hands of politicians who might use it to their advantage. Through much of the world, quasi-independent central banks are now entrusted with the job of steering economies between the rocks of inflation and the whirlpool of deflation. Their judgement is often questioned, but their power is not. It is therefore ironic as well as unnerving that precisely at this moment, when we have all become sort-of ...

First of all, I'm not asking for standard, partisan rhetorical responses. I know the Republican and Democratic response to this question. I'm asking the economists and economics students that may have studied this what they're opinions are about the massive infusion of borrowed money into the monetary system. What is covering the U.S.'s trillion dollar borrowings if the private side is not actually lending it? Is that okay for the system? Can they pull it back out just as easily?
