The Boston Fed — created by Congress, assigned to serve the six New England states, one of 12 Federal Reserve Banks around the country — has three responsibilities:
(1) Maintain a safe and sound banking system so consumers and businesses know their money is safe when making banking transactions
(2) Maintain a level of interest rates that keeps inflation in check while permitting the economy to grow
