WHO: SF Federal Reserve Bank President Robert T. Parry and
First VP John Moore welcome 20 high school seniors in
previewing a new interactive economics exhibit — The Fed
Center: Exploring Our Nation’s Central Bank.
WHAT: The Fed Center is a permanent installation designed to
teach the public about the functions of the U.S. Central
bank through a series of hands-on and visually engaging
experiences. Whimsical and thought-provoking elements in
the exhibit include giant iconic representations of
financial concepts, such as a free-floating globe, a
suspended safe, and a 14-foot tilting chair.
Media are invited to join students in being the first
members of the public to preview the new Fed Center or
test their economic savvy by role playing Alan Greenspan
on an interest rate simulator.
WHY: California is one of fourteen states that require students
to complete an economics course in order to graduate. The
innovative designs of the Fed Center are sure to peak your
interest while you learn more about the Federal Reserve
and its role in the economy.
