Part A:

Explain how the Federal Reserve Board, or the Fed, might assist the United States in the event of a recession or depression with examples. You can use the recent 2007 recession as supporting information. Discuss the tools that the Fed uses to adjust money growth. Be sure to integrate the responsibilities or functions of the Fed into your response.

Part B:

Perform research on financial service institutions in your geographic area. Describe in detail the financial services that each provides, comparing interest rates, fees, and investment options. Which financial service institution do you think is best and why?
