Fed Once-Secret Loan Crisis Data Compiled by Bloomberg Released to Public

Bloomberg News today released spreadsheets showing daily borrowing totals for 407 banks and companies that tapped Federal Reserve emergency programs during the 2007 to 2009 financial crisis. It’s the first time such data have been publicly available in this form.
To download a zip file of the spreadsheets, go to For an explanation of the files, see the one labeled “1a Fed Data Roadmap.”
The data reflect lending from the Asset-Backed Commercial Paper Money Market Mutual Fund Liquidity Facility, theCommercial Paper Funding Facility, the Primary Dealer Credit Facility, the Term Auction Facility, the Term Securities Lending Facility, the discount window and single-tranche open market operations, or ST OMO.
Whoa, eventually all kinds of dirt will be found in this data, relative to who the Fed was propping up when it dished out $16 trillion in total.
