Quick Reference

Loans made to US banks from the Federal Reserve, which allow reserves in individual banks to remain at acceptable levels. This is usually only necessary when excessive lending is being undertaken, because otherwise reserves are kept to a workable minimum as they do not attract interest for the banks.
