Economic Education Resources
The Fed provides a number of educational resources to consumers interested in economics, personal finance and the inner workings of the Federal Reserve System.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago believes that economic and financial literacy serve critical roles in helping consumers make better decisions with their money. The path towards economic and financial understanding can begin as early as elementary school. The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago has prepared its Econ Explorers curriculum to help get this process started. A teacher's guide and a student's workbook are available for download.
