FRB vs BOJ
The fund balance of FRB has reached $2.5 trillion, three times larger than it was before the Lehman Shock.
However, as the nominal GDP of the US is $15 trillion, the balance accounts for just 15%.
On the other hand the Bank of Japan recorded 156 trillion yen of the balance in 2012, while Japan's GDP was a little less than 500 trillion yen ($5.5 trillion).
So, the US seems to have twice more room than Japan for the limit of financial manipulation to cope with the current financial crisis. Nonetheless the US dollar is the major key currency in the world. FRB supply of money to the market must be more strictly controlled.
