Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

European Tribune - The Crash is past. Comes now Inflation.
One of the side effects of the TAF is that U.S. bank reserves have fallen below zero; there is currently a quiet debate going on whether or not negative bank reserves is a problem or not, given the emergency measures the Fed has implemented.  
I don't understand how it is possible for reserves to be negative, can you explain how this happened? The US (unlike the UK) does have a reserve requirement. Is the Fed not enforcing its own banking regulations? Are the banks now technically insolvent?
