    As Guigo pointed out, the CASA DA MOEDA is responsible for printing money and the BANCO CENTRAL responsible for regulating the banking system and conducting the monetary policy as a whole, which includes ordering that new money be printed. You can find more information on the website of the Brazilian central bank, also available in English: http://www.bcb.gov.br/?english

    Hi California1226. Many times the expression is left untranslated, specially when used in newspapers' articles, with a short explanation in brackets that the US Federal Reserve corresponds approximately to what is known as Banco Central in Brazil and other countries. Sometimes they even use the abbreviation Fed.
