ECN215 Week 5 Option 1 Federal Reserve

The Federal Reserve (Fed) exerts considerable control over the money supply. In your paper:
Identify the tools the Fed uses to control the money supply (traditionally there have been 3 tools but see this article (Links to an external site.) for a discussion of a new, fourth tool).
Discuss how those tools can be used to control the money supply.
Identify the tool the Fed uses most often and explain why the Fed seldom uses the other two.
Discuss the most recent actions by the Fed.
Evaluate those actions in terms of how they might affect your career decisions. For example, would the Fed actions make it better or worse to seek a bomb change or to leave the workforce and return to school, etc).
Adhere to the following standards:
Your paper should be 3-4 pages in length, not including the title or references pages.
Include at least 3 scholarly reference.
The Economics Library Guide (Links to an external site.) is a good tool to use to start your research (sources such as The Balance,, Investopedia, and other help websites are not acceptable).
Your paper should conform to APA guidelines in the CSU Global Writing Center (Links to an external site.).
