Abstract:

As the anchor of the global economy, the Federal Reserve Bank handles more money than any other bank in the world. This program explores the far-reaching responsibilities of the Federal Reserve in setting interest rates, regulating other U.S. banks, and making new money. For the first time, cameras go inside the Fed's network command center, the hub of the electronic payment system called FEDWIRE where banks and big institutions pay each other and where over $2.1 trillion changes hands each day. The program also looks at the fascinating manufacture of U.S. currency and high-tech ways to combat counterfeiting.
