Few institutions in our economy are as little understood as our Federal Reserve, yet no institution has the impact on our economy that the “Fed” has. For example, did you know that:

  • The Federal Reserve is not an agency of the US Government
  • It is a corporation with stockholders
  • By law, Fed stock pays its owners an attractive 6% dividend

There is not just one Fed, but 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks.The Fed’s economic impact is no more significant than it is today. With the toll the coronavirus is taking on the economy, our Fed has rolled out programs from the 2008 credit crisis response and recently introduced a variety of economic initiatives never before seen or used.
