Money Supply Changes by the Fed
  • Open-Market Operations: The primary way in which the Fed changes the money supply done through the purchase and sale of U.S. government bonds with newly printed money.
    • To increase the money supply, the Fed buys government bonds from the public.
    • To decrease the money supply, the Fed sells government bonds to the public.

Quick Quiz!
  • How does the Fed increase the supply of money in the economy?
banks and the money supply
Banks and The Money Supply
  • The behavior of banks can influence the quantity of demand deposits in the economy and therefore, the money supply.
  • Fractional Reserve Banking System: The practice of holding a fraction of money deposited as reserves and lending out the rest.
fractional reserve banking
Fractional Reserve Banking
  • Deposits into a bank are recorded as both assets and liabilities. Deposits that have been received but not lent out are called reserves.
  • The supply of money in the economy is affected by the amount of deposits that are kept in the bank as reserves and the amount that is lent out. Loans become an asset to the bank.

money creation with fractional reserve banking
Money Creation with Fractional-Reserve Banking
  • When a bank makes a loan (from it’s reserves) the money supply increases. When banks hold only a fraction of deposits in reserve, banks create money.
  • The creation of money through loans does not create any wealth, but allows banks to charge interest several times on the same bit of wealth.
the money multiplier
The Money Multiplier
  • When one bank loans money, that money is generally deposited into another or the same bank thus creating more deposits and more reserves to be lent out.
  • The Money Multiplier is the amount of money that the banking system generates with each dollar of reserves.

  • The money multiplier is the reciprocal of the reserve ratio.
    • With a reserve requirement (R) of 20% or 1/5 . . .
    • The multiplier will be 5.

tools of monetary control
Tools of Monetary Control

The Fed has three instruments of monetary control:

  • Open-Market Operations:
    • Buying and selling bonds.
  • Changing the Reserve Ratio:
    • Increasing or decreasing the ratio.
  • Changing the Discount Rate:
    • The interest rate the Fed charges other banks for loans.
problems in controlling the money supply
Problems in Controlling the Money Supply
  • Two problems that the Fed must “wrestle” that arise due to fractional-reserve banking:
  • The Fed does not control the amount of money that households choose to hold as deposits in banks.
  • The Fed does not control the amount of money that bankers choose to lend.
