The San Francisco Fed and the West: a century of reinvention

Abstract: John C. Williams and Sam Zuckerman explore how our region grew into an economic and cultural pacesetter for the world, and how the San Francisco Fed evolved to become part of a 21st century central banking system. The story offers important lessons on what it took for the West to become a force for economic progress during the past century and how the qualities rooted in the spirit of the region will be essential in the years ahead.
