  1. The Federal Reserve creates money out of thin air. But what about all the “earnings” and fictitous capital listed on the balance sheets of financial companies that are created due to repeated accounting rule changes… not to mention dozens of facilities created by the FED. Probable an excercise in fultility. But what are peoples thoughts on how much of the cash sitting on finnacial company balance sheets is created out of thin air?
