Consequences of Federal Reserve Policies

For several decades, through many crises, the Federal Reserve was a pillar of stability, maintaining a balance sheet level at roughly 6% of GDP. It radically shifted policy beginning with the 2008 financial crisis and continuing through Covid, expanded to 36% of GDP. Now, the Fed is sharply reversing course again. The data and dashboard presented below illustrate the consequences of these policy shifts.
