History of central banking
The name of an independent authority of a country at the national level that conducts all the monetary policies of that country is known as the central banking system. The basic aim of the central banking system is to provide the best financial services along with the best economic research facilities. The main goal of maintaining the central banking system is to devise such a plan that ensures the stability of the currency of a nation. If we talk about the history of the central banking, then we come to know that the history of the central bank is not novice for us because the first central bank was formulated in the 17th century under the name of the Swedish Riksbank. It was established in 1668. After the few decades of the establishment of the Swedish Riksbank, in 1694, the most famous central bank, the bank of England was established. Later on, some other banks on the same concept were established in the other European countries. The basic aim of the central banks that were established in the early days was that they were providing the debt and the funding facilities to the government.

For example, if we talk about the micro as well as macro functions in the economics, then we come to know that microeconomics is the name of that economics which is related to study at an individual, a group of particular people or a particular company. On the other hand, if we talk about the macroeconomics, then we come to know that it is the study of economics that is done by us at the national level. The main objective of studying the micro and the macro functions is to study all the objects on the small scale as well as at the large scale. Moreover, these functions are also helpful for us to evaluate the different objects within an organization.
