12 Federal Reserve Banks

Some recent events have led me to do some unusual research on several Federal Reserve policies.

Putting the research aside for the moment, I am continually amazed at how much great stuff is on the various Fed web pages. If you haven’t played with the various Regional Fed bank sites, you are missing an astonishingly deep resource.

Here’s a few links to get you started:

That should be enough to get you started. 

As you get deeper into each site, you will notice there is an astonishing depth and breadth of economic data at most of the various Fed Bank websites. Each Fed location seems to have developed their own emphasis, all have robust search features, lots of good data and analysis, and all sorts of great charts.  (I really need to get a hobby)

Also, with this post, we rather belatedly introduce the category "Federal Reserve."
