To stem the financial crisis, the Federal Reserve purchased massive volumes of Treasury and government agency mortgage securities, ballooning the Fed’s balance sheet to $4.5 trillion. Throughout the recovery, the Fed kept nominal interest rates close to zero, and even now Fed policy rates are negative in real terms. Meanwhile, banks have accumulated $2.34 trillion in reserves balances that earn interest from the Fed while adapting to a myriad of new postcrisis regulations.  Participants
