 Question...How have the interest rates charged by the Federal Reserve impacted the amount banks are willing to loan to businesses? Is the Fed a government entity?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Low interest rates improves the banking sheet and enables the bank to increase its capacity to lend. When the short term interest rates are low, the banks are able to recapitalize hence enabling the increase of the industry net interest margin. This will boost the retained earning that are converted into capital. With adequate capital in the banks, the amount of money that the banks can give to business people are increased which further fosters the business activity hence the economy of the country.

Fed is a public independent entity within the government. It is not owned privately by anyone but is in the government for the public.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
