The Federal Reserve is America's central bank. As such, it can introduce various economic policies to tackle a downturn and stimulate the economy, such as:

  • Raising or lowering interest rates;
  • Extending cash or credit to financial institutions;
  • Selling or buying U.S. government debt (Treasury notes and bills.)
