The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City provides this new site to help introduce the federal reserve system to the uninitiated, particularly high school-aged visitors (though anyone who wants to learn basic knowledge about the Fed can benefit from a visit). The site is divided into five main sections -- History, Structure, Monetary Policy, Banking Supervision, and Financial Services -- each of which includes a healthy amount of information, as well as a quiz, and a list of links to related sites. The front page of the site also offers select sections highlighted in links that look like books, though with the exception of Fed Clue, these seem to be available in the five main sections as well. Throughout the site, vocabulary words are linked to detailed definitions and descriptions, and interactive exercises do their best to make learning about finances engaging. The site requires Flash 5 but is also available in an HTML version.
