No bank holds excess reserves, and everybody keeps all their money in the banking system. The total reserves in the banking system is \$80. With all that, answer the following: 1. What is the total money supply? \$800 2. What is the equilibrium interest rate? 10% 3. What is the equilibrium level of national income? \$5,900 NOW Suppose: The government wants Y*/national income to be \$5,600. It decides to pressure the central bank.
