Abstract

The Federal Reserve has responsibilities in three functional areas: Bank supervision and regulation, monetary policy, and services to the payments system. Although much has changed in each of these areas since the Fed was founded nearly one hundred years ago, the Federal Reserve System has changed relatively little. This paper reviews the Fed's operations and structure and suggests reforms that are coherent with its mission and the current state of the financial system.
