Under Obama, Fedís Holdings of U.S. Debt Have Jumped 452%

Since President Barack Obama was inaugurated in January 2009, the Federal Reserveís holdings of U.S. government debt have quintupled, according to the Fedís official monthly balance sheet.

On Jan. 28, 2009, a week after Obamaís nomination, the Fed owned $302 billion in U.S. Treasury securities. On April 25, 2012, the latest date reported, the Fed owned five and a half time that much in U.S. Treasury securities--$1.668 trillion.

That is an increase from January 2009 of $1.366 trillionóor 452 percent.

Under Obama, the Federal Reserve has become the single largest owner of U.S. government debt. When Obama entered office, entities in the Peopleís Republic of China were the largest holders, followed by entities in Japan. At the end of January 2009, China owned $739.6 billion in U.S. government debt and Japan owned $634.8 billion.

By the end of March 2012, Chinaís holdings of U.S. debt had grown to $1.1699 trillion and Japanís holdings had grown to $1.083 trillion.

Together, the Federal Reserve, China and Japan had increased their holdings of U.S. debt by $2.2445 trillion since Obama took office.

The total U.S. government debt grew from $10.6179 trillion to $15.6233 between Jan. 28, 2009 and April 25, 2012. Leaving out the intragovernmental debtówhich the federal government owes itselfóthe publicly owned part of the U.S. government debt has climbed from $6.2955 trillion to $10.8607 trillion, an increase of $4.5652 trillion.

The $2.2445 trillion of that new publicly owned U.S. government debt that was purchased by the Fed, China and Japan equals 49 percent of all the new debt the U.S. government has sold to the public since Obama took office.

kbit, thanks for the time to keep posting articles, I appreciate it. I think I am losing my hope in reporting. I tend not to watch the news anymore since I found it hurt my trading.

I seriously think a lot of reporters/bloggers/writers don't understand our government. The headline for this could have easily been "Bush appointee Ben Bernanke increased Fed holdings by 452% under QE1" (Bernanke was not appointed / nominated until the fall of 2009 by Obama, after QE1) or "Helicopter Ben drops half a quadrillion out of his helicopter"

Obama or Bush is neither here or there, the story is that the Fed created trillions of dollars out of thin air to buy those US securities in QE1. So the only story is that this article is spun that QE1 was 'under Obama'. I am more concerned by the money printing by the 'independent' Federal reserve for QE1, QE2 ( and QE3 ) than anything else.

Once again kbit, thanks for the time to keep posting.

* The Fed , (according to the Board of Governors ) the Federal Reserve is independent within government in that "its monetary policy decisions do not have to be approved by the President or anyone else in the executive or legislative branches of government."

Math. A gateway drug to reality.
