Federal Reserve Posters (1920’s)

Over the years, the Federal Reserve System has used many methods to communicate about the role it plays in support of stable prices, full employment, and financial stability. Current communication tools include the new press conferences by the Chairman, speeches by Bank presidents, public websites, economic education programs, local outreach efforts, publications, and blogs like this one.

Back when the Fed was new, and the nation’s economy was plagued by a growing number of bank failures, the posters below were supposed to convey a sense of strength and stability.
