Administrative Note Redux

September 30th, 2009 7:59 am | by John Jansen |

After much effort my computer is back and operating here on the world wide web.

Unfortunately, I will not be blogging today as I must be in the big city for a series of meetings.

Blogging will resume tomorrow.

Thank you and have a great day.

    The only way to finance a Treasury deficit pushing $2 trillion is through the banking system. Even if savings rise to 10% of GDP and all savings go into Treasury securities, that only covers a trillion dollars. Foreign purchases might reach $300-$400 billion as China and other creditors are forced to swallow more US obligations for lack of other things to buy.

    But I note that since May, although total bank credit has fallen from $9.35 trillion to $9.12 trillion, bank holdings of Treasury securities have risen to $1.383 trillion from $1.26 trillion. Expect this to continue: the Fed will keep money easy so that banks can continue to buy into the long end of the curve with security and keep long-term yields (and mortgage rates) low.
