Federal Reserve System & Banking Regulation
In the individual assignment due this week, students explore the reasons behind regulating banks and how that regulation relates to the formation of the Federal Reserve System. Students demonstrate an understanding of the effects Federal Reserve policies have on interest rates, financial markets, and financial institutions. Students are given the opportunity to participate in additional activities that further explore the risks faced by financial institutions and how those risks are measured.
In the Learning Team assignment due this week, students deepen their understanding of the services provided, main source of funding, interactions with financial markets, and how Federal Reserve policies affect financial institutions.
