Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System

The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is the main governing body of the Federal Reserve System. It is charged with overseeing the 12 District Reserve Banks and with helping implement national monetary policy. Governors are appointed by the President of the United States and confirmed by the Senate for staggered, 14-year terms. Prior to the enactment of the Banking Act of 1935, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System was known as the Federal Reserve Board.

Federal Reserve Bulletin

Federal Reserve Bulletin


Go to Publication

Description:
The monthly Federal Reserve Bulletin was introduced in 1915 by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System to present policy issues and provide a journal of record of the activities of the Board. The Bulletin was also constructed to present data in the areas of business, finance, and international transactions that affect U.S. monetary policy and the goals of the Federal Reserve System. Authors from the Federal Reserve Boards' Research and Statistics, Monetary Affairs, International Finance, Banking Supervision and Regulation, Consumer and Community Affairs, Reserve Bank Operations, and Legal divisions contribute to the contents published in each issue. The Bulletin includes topical research articles, legal developments, Report on the Condition of the U.S. Banking Industry, and other general information.

In 2006, the regular publication of paper issues was discontinued and replaced with an annual compilation available online. Between 2004 and 2008, the Financial and Business Statistics section of the Bulletin was published monthly as the Statistical Supplement to the Federal Reserve Bulletin. This data is now only available as Data Sources at this website http://www.federalreserve.gov/pubs/supplement/statsupdata/statsupdata.htm

Impact of the Payment of Interest on Demand Deposits: A Study of the Staff of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System


View Issue

Description:
This paper, prepared by Stephen H. Axilrod, Staff Director for Monetary Policy, in collaboration with members of the Board's Division of Research and Statistics, evaluates the probably effects of lifting the prohibition on payment of interest on demand deposits, which had been in effect since 1933. The effects on banks, other depository institutions, and the public, as well as on monetary policy and credit markets as a whole, are discussed. The study suggests that the most significant potential problem lies in the transitional adjustments of banks and other institutions to the new competitive environment; possible mitigation techniques are discussed.
