Question
What happen when bank borrow money from federal reserve bank and not pay it back ? Does inflation happen? Or nothing happen ?

Answer
If a bank borrows from the federal reserve and does not pay it back, then the bank will most likely have to go to court.  They will either be sued by the federal reserve bank and forced to repay it by the government, or, if they can't pay it back, they will have to file bankruptcy and default on their debt.  Either way, it would end up in court for the judges to decide.
