WHO: SF Federal Reserve Bank President Robert T. Parry and

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.
