Presentation Transcript

While cleaning your apartment, you look under the sofa cushion find a \$50 bill (and a half-eaten taco). You deposit the bill in your checking account. The Fed’s reserve requirement is 20% of deposits.

Q1. What is the maximum amount that the money supply could increase?

Ans: Reserve ratio = R = 1/5. Maximum increase happens when banks hold no excess reserves. Then ∆M1 = ∆Checkable deposits + ∆Currency in circulation = (50 x 5) – 50 (currency has dropped because you have deposited the money) = 200

Q2. What is the minimum amount that the money supply could increase?

Ans: Minimum increase happens when bank hold 100% reserves. ∆M1 = 50 – 50 = 0, then

Q3. Suppose that banks desire to hold no excess reserves. The reserve requirement is 5 percent. A bank receives a new deposit of \$400. What amount of new loans can the bank make with this new deposit?

Ans: Banks keep \$20 and lends \$380.
