Stephen Williamson: New Monetarist Economics: Fed Targets
What do we want a central bank to do? The initial mandate given to the Fed, in the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, was to "furnish an elastic currency." What the framers of the Act appeared to have had in mind was intervention by the central bank to smooth the effects of predictable seasonal fluctuations in the demand for currency, and to prevent the banking panic episodes that had occurred during the National Banking era after the Civil War. Intervention was to occur primarily by use of the discount window - there did not appear to be a good understanding of open market operations and their effects in 1913.
