The Federal Reserve Bank manages the U.S. economy by controlling the money supply.
The Federal Reserve Bank doesn't get their money from anyone; they're the central bank for the United States of America. They watch our GDP, or Gross Domestic Product, which i…s the measure of growth in our economy, and supplies money to satisfy that level of growth. One of the FRB's jobs is to regulate the quantity of money in our economy to avoid inflation and deflation. Bills are printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing at the request of the FRB, and are distributed to the banking system via the 12 different regional Federal Reserve banks around the US. In conjunction with the BEP the FRB also shreds old money after it has cycled through the system a certain number of times. Millions of old dollars are shredded by the FRB every day. I'd like to just add in here, that the Federal Reserve is not Federal at all. It isn't even a part of our government and is not subject to U.S laws. It is a private bank that was given it's power through the 1913 Federal Reserve Act, and the 'law' was not legally ratified. The Federal Reserve was the cause of the Depression and all, including current, inflation and loss of value in the U.S dollar.

The Federal Reserve System (also known as the Federal Reserve, and informally as The Fed) is the central banking system of the United States. It was created in 1913 with the e…nactment of the Federal Reserve Act, largely in response to a series of financial panics, particularly a severe panic in 1907. Over time, the roles and responsibilities of the Federal Reserve System have expanded and its structure has evolved. Events such as the Great Depression were major factors leading to changes in the system. Its duties today, according to official Federal Reserve documentation, are to conduct the nation's monetary policy, supervise and regulate banking institutions, maintain the stability of the financial system and provide financial services to depository institutions, the U.S. government, and foreign official institutions.
Responsibilities of the Federal Reserve Bank include loaning money to private banks, printing money, and lessening economic crises.
