CREATING MONEY The reserve requirement is the percentage of deposited funds that a bank must keep in reserve (that is, not lend out). The amount of money in the banking system is a function of the reserve requirement: - The higher the reserve requirement, the less funds available to lend. - The lower the reserve requirement, the more funds available to lend. The effect of the reserve requirement on the money supply is summarized with the money multiplier : - If the reserve requirement is 5%, the money multiplier is 20 times. - If the reserve requirement is 10%, the money multiplier is 10 times.
