History of the Legal Tender Paper Money Issued During the Great Rebellion, Being a Loan Without Interest and a National Currency

History of the Legal Tender Paper Money Issued During the Great Rebellion, Being a Loan Without Interest and a National Currency


View Issue

Description:
E. G. Spaulding, Chairman of the Subcommittee of the Ways and Means at the time of the 1862 Legal Tender Act, compiled this history of paper legal tender. At the time of the Act, the United States had no national currency and no means to support the Union effort in the Civil War. The Act was passed to authorize the creation of paper money not backed by gold or silver, legal tender for "payment of all taxes, internal duties, excises, debts, and demands of every kind due to the United States." The Act laid the foundation for the creation of a permanent currency in the decades after the Civil War.

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

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.

This book was published in 1921 by the National City Bank of New York, the largest national bank in the country at the time (eventually renamed Citibank), with the purpose of giving a picture and an interpretation of the national banking in the United States under the Federal Reserve System.
