98 Mishkin/Eakins • Financial Markets and Institutions, Sixth Edition Overview and Teaching Tips Although this chapter performs the conventional function of outlining what banks (depository institutions) do, and what their balance sheets and income statements look like, it also emphasizes an analytic way of thinking about how banks manage their assets and liabilities to make a profit. Two tools are used throughout this chapter and the rest of the book—T-accounts and the analysis of the determinants of asset demand, developed in Chapter 4. In teaching this material, it is worth emphasizing to the student that mastery of these two tools will pay high dividends in helping them to learn (and perform well on exams) in this course. Another point to emphasize is that the principles discussed here for bank management also apply to many other financial institutions as well. The first three sections of the chapter—“The Bank Balance Sheet,” “Basic Banking” and “General Principles of Bank Management”—place particular emphasis on the question of why banks hold excess reserves, since banks’ decisions about the amount of excess reserves they hold play an important role in the money supply process.

Chapter 17 Banking and the Management of Financial Institutions 99 The subsection, “Capital Adequacy Management,” and the following section, “Off-Balance-Sheet Activities,” discuss issues which have become increasingly important in recent years. Many instructors may therefore want to include this material in their course, yet none of this material is essential to understanding later chapters, so it can be skipped without any loss of continuity. The Practicing Manager application on strategies for managing bank capital illustrates how managers deal with an important managerial issue, while the case on the credit crunch of 1990–92 particularly piques the interest of students because it shows how changes in banks’ behavior can have major effects on the economy.
