Central banks are responsible for managing the monetary policies of the government or states with which they are associated. The most important role of any central bank is to maintain stability of the money supply and financial markets. Central banks can influence current interest rates with their actions, and in times of financial crisis, can act as a "lender of last resort" to commercial banks.
Commercial banks are for-profit, private or public companies, which make a profit on the difference between interest rates paid to, and earned from, businesses and individuals.
A Central Bank refers to the government-bank for a country. In the United States, we have the Federal Reserve System (aka the "Fed") which is slightly different, but serves essentially the same function. The Fed controls the money supply and is responsible for setting policies that can affect the rate of inflation and interest rates. The Fed also provides loans to major banks. The higher the interest rate it charges the less banks will tend to borrow, tightening the money supply and driving up interest rates for businesses and consumers. A commercial bank is generally a bank involved in loans and depository services (among other things) for businesses. The term has been stretched over the years to the point that it could mean just about any bank that provides business banking services. Hope this helps.
