    Pat gave you good advice. But, may I add: just Google "Federal Trade Commission" and see what you get.

    But to answer your question: the Federal Trade Commission is part of the Executive Branch of government. Its creation was authorized by an Act of Congress and gets funded via the annual Federal budget. It regulates the many aspects of trade, which you can imagine has expanded exponentially since it was created.

    I'll leave the rest of the "information mining" to you and your Google search/es.
