Resources for Readers: Explaining The Fed

Regular readers will be familiar with our semi-regular efforts at bringing interesting, free resources to our visitors' attention. Today, we would like to highlight a resource which aims to demystify some of the inner workings of the Federal Reserve Banking system.

While the Classroom Economist video series from the Atlanta branch of the Fed might not necessarily allow one to form an opinion on whether or not another round of quantitative easing would have a beneficial or malignant impact on the economy, topics such as monetary policy and inflation are covered.

Visitors should note that this resource is geared toward educators, and the 'Lesson Demonstration' links will probably not hold much value to the general public. However, the general 'Chat with an Economist' videos, cut into digestible bits, should do the job for those who would value quick primers on the subjects highlighted.
