If one were to follow this  multiple deposit expansion  process to its completion, the end result  would be that the bank's deposits would increase by \$1 million, its loans would increase by  \$900,000, and its reserves would increase by \$100,000, all due to the initial deposit of \$100,000.  Money multiplier.  The amount by which bank deposits expand in response to an increase in  excess  reserves  is found through the use of the  money multiplier , which is given by the formula  In the example of deposit expansion found in Table 2  , the reserve requirement is 10%; so, the  money multiplier in this case is (1/.10) = 10. The excess reserves resulting from the initial deposit of  \$100,000 are \$90,000. Multiplying \$90,000 by the money multiplier, 10, yields \$900,000, which is the  amount of  additional  deposits created by the banking system as the result of the initial \$100,000  deposit.  In reality, loan recipients do not deposit all of their loan funds into a bank. More typically, they hold a

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
