Federal Reserve Bank explains trade through comic book

NEW YORK -- Holy exchange rate, Batman! The Federal Reserve Bank of New York has done another comic book. The Story of Foreign Trade and Exchange is the latest in a running series of educational handouts the bank publishes to explain complex economic topics to America's high school and college students. Though it may not have the blood-chilling villains of the X-Men or Spider-Man, the latest book does have plenty of humorous situations that help explain arcane concepts like opportunity cost and comparative advantage.
