The Treasury normally issues bonds to finance some portion of the government’s expenditures. The central bank then buys in the open market an amount of these sufficient to put in circulation the appropriate quantity of money. In some cases, the central bank may buy bonds directly from the Treasury, who puts the funds in circulation when it makes government expenditures with them.

Answer – The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is a United States government corporation providing deposit insurance to depositors in U.S. commercial banks and savings institutions. The FDIC was created by the 1933 Banking Act, enacted during the Great Depression to restore trust in the American banking system. More than one-third of banks failed in the years before the FDIC’s creation, and bank runs were common. The insurance limit was initially US$2,500 per ownership category, and this was increased several times over the years. Since the passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in 2011, the FDIC insures deposits in member banks up to US$250,000 per ownership category.
The FDIC and its reserves are not funded by public funds; member banks’ insurance dues are the FDIC’s primary source of funding. The FDIC also has a US$100 billion line of credit with the United States Department of the Treasury. Only banks are insured by the FDIC; credit unions are insured up to the same insurance limit by the National Credit Union Administration, which is also a government agency. As of the end of 2017, the FDIC provided deposit insurance at 5,670 institutions. The FDIC also examines and supervises certain financial institutions for safety and soundness, performs certain consumer-protection functions, and manages receiverships of failed banks
