What kind of mechanism is it that gives the exchanges the ability to exchange?

I am not understanding this supply chain very well. It feels sketchy. Sad

Basically, I am confused as to how BTC are converted to liberty reserves, dwolla bucks, etc.

Does Mt.Gox for example have a large sum of dwolla bucks that they manage around?

The easiest way is to exchange into LR($) (Liberty Reserve) and then try to sell LR($) into Cash (like US-$ or EUR)

Just trying to understand the process.

I'm not educated in stocks and economies.

I am however confused as to how the exchanges function. Are there wikipedia links or something similar someone can recommend?

They function very simply.  When you deposit funds (whether dollars or bit coins) into your account they are held by the exchange.  Then when you match a buyer and a seller of one currency into another, the funds are moved between the two accounts and a commision is deducted.

The exhanges are simply a trusted third party holding funds and performing the actual trade.

Dwolla and others are simply a way to send money between established real world banking entities.  When you deposit or withdraw funds from mtgox they move them between real world bank account #1 (yours or mtgox) and real world bank account #2 (theirs).

Simple diagram to explain hash to cash

http://www.bitcoinpincher.com/hash-to-cash

Mt. Gox is simply marrying buyers to sellers... and Buyers already have $$ in their accts and sellers already have bitcoins in their accts, so they don't need a stockpile of coinage.
