Since the onset of the financial crisis of 2007-08 the FED have continuously discouraged the banking sector from lending to the retail institutions like individuals which was aimed at reducing the inflationary trend but this has widened the unemployment in the economy. Because of this the reserves in the banking system has increased tremendously from a $40bn in 2007 (excess reserves were to the tune of $15bn) to almost a trillion dollars in 2012. Of this a net amount of $90 billion is regarded as excess reserves in 2011-12. This was unprecedented not in terms of size only but in terms scale as it has never happened before. (Mankiw, 2012)
