The FED is structured uniquely to eliminate full governmental control but still maintain a degree of accountability to the government and the general public. A board of directors represents governmental interests, while regional reserve banks represent private interests. Consequently it maintains government independence by financing its own operations. The Fed consists of seven Board of Governors and twelve Regional Banks. Governors are appointed by the current president and are further confirmed by the Senate.
Two major economic thinkers of the of the early twentieth century, John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich A. Hayek, hold very different economic viewpoints. Keynes is among the most famous economic philosophers. Keynes, who's theories gained a reputation during the Great Depression in the 1930s, focused mainly on an economy's bust. It is where the economy declines and finally bottoms-out, that Keynesian economics believes the answers lie for its eventual recovery. On the other hand, Hayek believed that in studying the boom answers would be provided to lead the economy out of the bust that was sure to follow.
The Board of Governors is a part of the public sector; The governors are appointed by the president of the United States, and is approved by the senate. Each governor on the board of governors serves a term of 14 years, and it is separated in a way that one member is replaced every two years. In addition to selecting board members, the president also selects a chairperson and vice-chairperson from one of the seven governors. Below the Board of Governors are the 12 Federal Reserve Banks. Each of the 12 banks covers a region on the United States where they are in charge of implementing the decision of the Board.
Service fees such as clearing checks, transferring funds, and interest on loans to depository institutions provide monetary incomes. Lastly, once the Federal Reserve pays its taxes the remaining money goes straight to the U.S Treasury. I feel that if the Federal Reserve came under control of the President that it may promote issues that would lead to unwarranted money creation and inflation. Keeping the bank independent of authority we are able to foresee the government’s tendency to resort to inflation. The Federal Reserve and Department of Treasury already work close together to take care of economic hardships such as weak a stimulus and saving failing cooperation’s.
The Board is the main decision-making body, determines the policy of the World Bank. The member countries are represented on the Governing Board, usually Finance Ministers.

What the world needs now is Money Sweet Money"; that is not the way the song goes however that is surely the way our world and economy does. Money and its importance relative to the US Government have always been difficult to figure out especially when it comes to interest rates. Due to our Federal Reserve System, its chairman Alan Greenspan, and his Board of Governors dedicated to seeing that our economy blossoms, those doubts have become a thing of the past, for now. The Federal Reserve System is a central banking of the US Government, most commonly known as the Fed. A central bank serves as the banker to both the banking community and the government.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) was created at the Bretton Woods Conference in 1944 “with the goal of creating a stable framework for post-war global economy” (Shah, 2013). The IMF was established after World War II in hopes of deterring a depression and another war, as well as to stabilize countries in poverty with great instability. The IMF was originally envisioned to stimulate stable growth through unconditional loans to countries suffering from economic shortfalls; instead, pressures forced the IMF offer loans with conditions (Third World Traveler, 2010). The IMF is run by the world’s most powerful countries including Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Canada and the United States; where almost 17 percent of votes are held by the United States (Shah, 2013). Until 2010 the United States controlled enough votes to also have veto power at IMF.
Introduction In this essay we are going to critically analyze the International monetary fund (IMF) from the perspective economic nationalist IPE approach. First of all what is IMF ¬? International monetary fund was founded 60 years ago, after the World War II.

In the book The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, from 1936, he challenges the economists who said that the economic problems would correct it selves and that the government shouldn't do a thing about it. Other had said that the wages should be reduced, and thereby it would increase the demand after workers and semi-products. Keynes disagreed with these views, and he stated that if the wages were lowered, people's purchasing power would be even more reduced and this would eventually lead to lower prices on industrial products and other merchandises. The unemployment grew rapidly all over the world during the Depression, and it is estimated that nearly 50 million people were out of work in the industrialized countries. One of Keynes' main ideas was an active government.
