Sellers of CDOs were not required to hold “reserves” against possible losses. 2. Purchasers of subprime mortgages purchased a large number of CDOs from the same firms. These firms did not have sufficient reserves to meet their obligations. 3. The federal government began to step in to “bail out” failing firms because of the fear of system-wide financial collapse. 4.

Interest rate determines investment spending, and hence aggregate demand. AD and AS functions then determine the equilibrium level of real GDP and the price level. The equilibrium interest rate is determined by the demand for and the supply of money. and 27 27 INTRODUCTION Financial institutions are for-profit Financial corporations. corporations.

Req. = 10%, money multiplier is equal to 10 in above example. equal IMPORTANT Assumptions: IMPORTANT No leakages into cash No Banks are willing to loan out all willing excess reserves Banks are able to loan out all able excess reserves excess 35 MONEY CREATION: Page 1 Money is created on the basis of: (1) Excess reserves (1) (2) The money multiplier In above example, $900,000 deposits created by the banking system: $90,000 in initial excess reserves $90,000 Money multiplier = 1/Res. Req. = 1/10% = 10 $90,000 * 10 = $900,000 $900,000 in new deposits increases the amount of Req. Res by $90,000, and this is the amount of initial excess reserves. Excess reserves “converted” into requird reserves. reserves. 36 MONEY CREATION: Page 2 Rework the above example with a 20% reserve requirement: Initial deposit = $100,000 Initial Initial Res. Req.= $20,000 Initial Initial Excess Res. $80,000 Money multiplier = 1/20% = 1/5 = 5 Money Money creation -= $80,000 * 5 = $400,000 $400,000 Rationale: $80,000 in initial excess reserves must be converted to $80,000 in required reserves. So there are no more excess reserves and the expansion (relending) process stops. process 37 NUMERICAL EXAMPLE: NUMERICAL Expanding the Money Supply Suppose the private commercial banking Suppose system has $800 in deposits and no excess reserves when the legal reserve requirement is 25%. By how much can the money supply expand if the legal reserve requirement is reduced to 20%? reserve ANSWER: $200 ANSWER: Calculation process for expansion 1. Find the amount of excess reserves 1. ($40). ($40). 2. Calculate the value of the money 2. multiplier. (1/20% = 5) multiplier. 3. Multiply excess reserves times the 3. money multiplier to get potential money-creating effect. (5 * 40 = $200) money-creating 38 Sample Problem: Expanding the Sample Money Supply Money BANKING SYSTEM Assets Liabilities Assets Liabilities Req. Res. Loans Loans Ex. Res. $200 $200 $600 $600 $000 Deposits $800 Now let the legal res. req. drop to 20% Now BANKING SYSTEM BANKING Assets Req. Res. Lo Ex. Res. Liabilities $160 $600 $040 Deposits $800 Given the maximum value of the money Given multiplier (1/20% = 5), the amount of deposits yet to be created is 5 * $40 = $200. 39 CONTRACTING THE MONEY CONTRACTING SUPPLY: SUPPLY: Banking system can destroy deposits as Banking destroy well as create them. Deposits are destroyed on the basis of a shortage of required reserves. shortage Maximum contraction given by the product of: Shortage of Required Reserves AND Shortage The money multiplier. This product shows the amount of deposits This that have to be destroyed to eliminate the destroyed shortage of required reserves. If initial shortage is $10,000 and money multiplier is 5, then: $10,000 * 5 = $50,000 * $10,000 40 CONTRACTING THE MONEY CONTRACTING SUPPLY SUPPLY (continued) BANK A Assets Assets Req. Res. Req. Loans & Loans Investments Investments Liabilities Liabilities $10,000 Deposits $100,000 $90,0000 No excess reserves in the system. A check for No $10,000 is “cashed” at Bank A. $10,000 BANK A BANK Assets Req. Res. $000000 Loans & Loans Investments $90,000 Investments Liabilities Deposits $90,000 Note the deficiency of required reserves! Cashing a Note check does NOT reduce loans and investments! check 41 CONTRACTING THE MONEY SUPPLY (continued) . Note that bank sells off loans and investments of $9000 to replenish required reserves. Assets Assets Liabilities Liabilities Req. Res. $9000 Deposits $90,000 Loans & Loans Investments $81,000 Investments Note: deficiency in required reserves Note: resolved by calling in loans and investments. So some other bank will have a check clear against their deposits, and they will lose required reserves. and 42 CONTRACTING THE MONEY SUPPLY Page 4 Contracting the Money Supply Sales of Sales Rd Rd ∆ in Dep. ∆ In Req.

Process continues until enough Process deposits are “destroyed” to eliminate the shortage of required reserves. required 44 NUMERICAL EXAMPLE: NUMERICAL Contracting the Money Supply Suppose the private commercial banking Suppose system has $800 in deposits and no excess reserves when the legal reserve excess requirement is 10%.
