    Found this paper by Zoldan Poszar, published by the FEDERAL RESERVE, that I think a few of us here, might find of interest.

    http://www.newyorkfed.org/research/staff_reports/sr458.pdf



    I haven't had time to study it (I found it as a tangential leap from another paper I was studying and want to complete that train of reading) but I suspect that the MAP of the shadow banking might be particularly of interest to those of us who are not entirely conversant with the banking industry that exists today.

    Hopefully I can get back to this to make some comments or perhaps folks like TORO or George Phillips (and others of like minds who are truly interested in discussions about ECON) might beat me to the punch and weight in with their thoughts about this paper.

    FWIW this paper makes me wish I had a large scale printer so I could study this chart in a large enough scale to take it all in at once, rather than having to shift the monitor to see it only part by part.

    STill, for someone like myself, (mostly cluelsss about the mechanics of our curent banking system) this ought to be a nice introduction to the BANKING WORLD as it exists today.

    It's a map of who really runs this country.
