The Financial Policy Forum drafts Primers for the purpose of providing access to the understanding of the financial markets.  They are written for the intelligent but non-specialized reader.  In doing so, we strive to make concepts clear and simple while avoiding saying something that is not technically correct. 

 

If you identify a problem with any Primer, please contact us in order to help us correct the mistake.
