Federal banking (Ofer Abarbanel online library)

Federal banking is the term for the way the Federal Reserve distributes its money. The Reserve (often called the “Fed”) operates twelve banking districts around the country which oversee money distribution within their respective districts.[1] The twelve cities which are home to the Reserve Banks are Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Richmond, Atlanta, Dallas, Saint Louis, Cleveland, Chicago, Minneapolis, Kansas City, and San Francisco.[2][3]
