FEDERAL RESERVE NOTE: Paper currency issued by each of the 12 Federal Reserve District Banks in denominations of $1, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100. Unlike paper currency of the past that was issued by the U. S. Treasury, these notes are backed by the Federal Reserve System. Specifically, each of the 12 Fed District Banks supplies notes within it's district. Each district bank puts it's own personal number and stamp (literally to the left of the portrait) on the notes it issues. For example, the number for the Boston District Bank is 1, while San Francisco Bank is 12.

Packing Up For MIGRATION

The quiet, peaceful town of Shady Valley has always been a great place for a pedestrian to wander through the workings of the economy. I'm afraid, though, that it's about to end. I've been offered another job -- an opportunity to wander around the streets of the distant mecca of Shady Lane to search out the mysteries of plant pathology. In Shady Lane, the sidewalks are smoother, the crosswalks are better, and the pay is much more lucrative. However, in that Shady Lane is in another time zone and several states away, migration would be my last topic of the day. There's a lot to be gained from this potential relocation of my residence, but it's not without cost. While I ponder this decision, perhaps you can help out by considering the topic of migration.
