  • By creating the Federal Reserve System, Congress intended to eliminate the severe f inancial crises that had periodically swept the nation, especially the sort of f inancial panic that occurred in 1907. During that episode, payments were disrupted throughout the country because many banks and clearinghouses refused to clear checks drawn on certain other banks, a practice that contributed to the failure of otherwise solvent banks. To address these problems, Congress gave the Federal Reserve System the authority to establish a nationwide check-clearing system.

  • During this period of monetary uncertainty, well-secured railroad bonds promising to pay principal and interest in gold sold at a premium relative to similar currency bonds. Through 1893, this premium behaved exactly as would be expected, growing during the early 1890s as the Treasury’s gold reserve gradually shrank under pressure of its silver purchases, reaching a peak during 1893 amidst a panic, and then falling quickly to zero after President Cleveland obtained a repeal of the silver purchase legislation.
