U.S.Shadow Banking

US Shadow Banking liabilities – a combination of Money Market funds, GSE and Agency paper, Asset-Backed paper, Funding Corporations, Open Market Paper and of course, Repos – hit $21 trillion in March 2008.

They have tumbled ever since, printing at just under $15 trillion at the end of March 2012, the lowest number since March 2005 when shadow banking liabilities were soaring. This is $6 trillion in flow being taken out of credit-money circulation, with a $143 billion drop in Q1 alone!

Unlike traditional banks, shadow banking has one huge deficiency: it has no deposits!
