The Fed, as the system is commonly called, is an independent governmental entity created by Congress in 1913 to serve as the central bank of the United States. It is responsible for: formulating and executing monetary policy, supervising and regulating depository institutions, providing an elastic currency, assisting the federal government`s financing operations, and serving as the banker for the U.S. government. In addition, it has important roles in operating the nation`s payments systems, protecting consumers` rights in their dealings with banks and promoting community development and reinvestment.
