The Relationship Between Mexico and the Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF)

Through the Gold Reserve Act of 1934, the U.S. Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF) was formed. The U.S. Department of Treasury has used the ESF mostly to conduct foreign exchange intervention; stabilization loans have been a key secondary activity of the account. Over the decades, the ESF primarily conducted foreign exchange intervention and international loans in mostly Latin American countries such as Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Panama.
