CENTRAL BANKS
The banking sector is underwritten by the unusual arrangements that are Central Banks


Central Bank asset growth from 2006 to 2016
The total was $5 trillion in 2006, rising to almost $17 trillion 10 years later. There is more 'money' in the world today than ever before, and hardly anyone in policy making leadership positions with any idea of what this really means.
The US Federal Reserve has increased the most on a percentage basis ... in large part because its financial sector had failed in the most dramatic way.
The People's Bank of China has increased the most on an absolute basis reflecting the massive size of the modern Chinese economy on top of a massive population.
