  9. 9. THE FED- Gatekeeper of the U.S. economy One of the more mysterious areas of the economy is the role of the Fed. Formally known as the Federal Reserve, the Fed is the gatekeeper of the U.S. economy. It is the central bank of the United States -- it is the bank of banks and the bank of the U.S. government. The Fed regulates financial institutions, manages the nations money and influences the economy. By raising and lowering interest rates, creating money and using a few other tricks, the Fed can either stimulate or slow down the economy. This manipulation helps maintain low inflation, high employment rates, and manufacturing output.
  10. 10. Understanding how the banks makemoney Banks are just like other businesses. Their product just happens to be money. Banks sell money -- in the form of loans, certificates of deposit (CDs) and other financial products. They make money on the interest they charge on loans.
  11. 11. Global Money Supply The primary purpose of the foreign exchange is to assist international trade and investment, by allowing businesses to convert one currency to another currency. For example, it permits a US business to import British goods and pay Pound Sterling, even though the business income is in US dollars. It also supports direct speculation in the value of currencies, and the carry trade, speculation on the change in interest rates in two currencies.[

  14. 14. SAVE B.I.G.- Save Something….. Personal saving enables individual households to withstand unforeseen expenses and income disruptions, such as job loss, health emergencies, or major home and automobile repairs. Saving also helps households fund large expenditures, including buying a home, starting a small business, or paying for college. In addition, saving helps ensure that households will have sufficient assets for retirement. Further, a cushion of savings provides households with many intangible benefits. For example, studies have shown that people who save feel that they have a "stake" in society and have better relationships with family and neighbors, increased community involvement, and enhanced personal respectability.1 On a macro level, personal saving is a major component of national saving; a country with robust savings generally has more available capital to fund investment and support economic growth.
