Stage 4: The central bank - What is its structure and what does it do?
If stable money is so important, then how can price stability be achieved, and what problems can arise?
Learn more about the work of the central bank, which is chiefly responsible for maintaining the value of the currency. How are the European System of Central Banks and the Deutsche Bundesbank organised? What are their tasks?
See how the central bank brings currency into circulation, manages the foreign reserves, and provides services for commercial banks. Learn about the Bundesbank's role in cashless payments - say, when you transfer funds.
Or you can take a seat at the conference table of the Governing Council of the European Central Bank.
