TRADE DEFICIT: Formally termed a balance of trade deficit, a condition in which a nation's imports are greater than exports. In other words, a country is buying more stuff for foreigners than foreigners are buying from domestic producers. A trade deficit is usually thought to be bad for a country. For this reason, some countries seek to reduce their trade deficit by--(1) establishing trade barriers on imports, (2) reducing the exchange rate (termed devaluation) such that exports are less expensive and imports more expensive, or (3) invading foreign countries with sizable armies.

THRIFT INSTITUTIONS ADVISORY COUNCIL:

A support committee of the Federal Reserve System that provides advice and input to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors on matters dealing with thrift institutions (savings and loan associations, credit unions, and mutual savings banks). The Thrift Institutions Advisory Council (TIAC) is comprised of 12 members, each serving for 2 years, who represent the interests of savings and loan associations, credit unions, and mutual savings banks. The TIAC is one of three Federal Reserve Board advisory committees. The other two are Federal Advisory Council and Consumer Advisory Council.
The Thrift Institutions Advisory Council (TIAC) is an advisory council that was established in 1980 when the Federal Reserve System extended regulatory oversight to thrift institutions (savings and loan associations, credit unions, and mutual savings banks). The Thrift Institutions Advisory Council contains 12 members, each serving for 2 years and appointed directly by the Board of Governors, who represent the interests of savings and loan associations, credit unions, and mutual savings banks.

The Thrift Institutions Advisory Council is designed to provide the Federal Reserve Board with advice and feedback in its role as a regulator of thrift institutions. In 1980, the Monetary Control Act extended regulatory oversight of thrift institutions to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. To assist in these new duties, the Board created the TIAC for feedback from representatives of thrift institutions. The council meets with the Federal Reserve Board 3 times a year to discuss the special needs and concerns of thrift institutions.

Two additional advisory councils provide the Federal Reserve Board with advice and feedback on Federal Reserve activity--Federal Advisory Council and Consumer Advisory Council.

  • Federal Advisory Council: This council is comprised of 12 members, one from each of the 12 Federal Reserve Districts. A council member, typically a commercial bank president operating in the district, is appointed by the Federal Reserve District Bank and serves three one-year terms. The Federal Advisory Council (FAC) meets with the Federal Reserve Board at least four times a year, generally the first Friday in February, May, September, and December, to discuss any and all issues relevant to the Federal Reserve System.

  • Consumer Advisory Council: Advice on credit consumer protection activities of the Federal Reserve Board is offered by this council of 30 members. The Consumer Advisory Council (CAC) was established in 1976 and contains members who represent consumers and financial groups, including both academicians and legal specialists with knowledge of consumer affairs. Members serve staggered 3 year terms. The council meets with the Federal Reserve Board three times a year

"Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly.
