The Fed's Balance Sheet

For some reason, we never grow bored of looking at this chart. This is a chart of the Federal Reserve's balance sheet, over time, in a stacked and colorful format (for your viewing pleasure). Oh yes, those numbers on the left are in hundreds of thousands. We wanted to provide the full number, for effect, but the display of the full figures had the unfortunate consequence of crowding out the rest of the chart. One can only imagine the sort of filth that lies in the region above $1Trillion. In another sort of speculation that is so troublesome it borders upon humurous, we wonder how many new colors will need to be added to this chart by the time it is all said and done.
