    Like any other commodity, if you increase the supply, he value fall; if you decrease the supply, the value rises…

    The Federal Reserve does not decrease it’s holdings of cash to buy the treasuires. It’s brings up Wells Fargo Reserve account and electronically punches in $1,000,000.00. Another way of saying it, they created the money with some key strokes on a computer. How much can they create? How how does the number system go? infinite? So they did not decrease their holdings of cash. They created the money from thin air or as Bernanke says “electronic printing press”.

    Start with the bank selling OMOs That way buying them (back) makes much more sense.

    Love this. I’m doing an essay on the Fed and I’m an English major!

    These basic policies look good on paper, or in this case video, but they haven’t done too much to stimulate the local economy.

  21. mjmfoodie September 14, 2012 at 8:00 pm #

    TOO LATE!! I should have checked my email earlier! Theoretically, you are correct; if no one wanted to “lay ball,” so to speak, OMOs wouldn’t work. But the reality seems to be that there is always someone willing to buy & sell.

    I have a question : it might be stupid but. . . how the transaction of the FED making open market purchases or sales occurs. I mean, let’s say with an open market purchase, the commercial banks may not be willing to sell there securities to the fed or in case of open market sales, banks may not be willing to buy the securities, what happens then. I don’t know if my question make sense, but I have my final exam in money and banking in about 12 hours, so an answer would be great, thank you.

    Well, they are two different things:

    1) fixing high levels of inflation means we would slow things down, or take money OUT of the economy – this is done when the Fed sells securities. The Fed ends up with the cash, the economy ends up with the securities.

    2) Trying to fix a recession means we would speed things up, or put money INTO the economy – this is done when the Fed buys securities. The Fed ends up with the securities, the economy ends up with the cash.
