Assume a simple money creation model, with no cash drain, no time deposits, and banks desire to hold no excess reserves. How does the open market purchase affect the T-accounts for FirstBank, SecondBank and ThirdBank? What is the total increase in deposits that results from the initial change in reserves? Assets Securities -$10000 Reserve +$10000 Loans +$10000 Assets Reserve +$2000 Loans +$8000 Assets Reserve +$1600 Loans +$6400 Liability Liability Liability First Bank Second Bank Third Bank Checkable deposit +$10000 Checkable deposit +$8000

Econ 350 Winter 2012 Assignment 8 2 And total $2000+$1600=$3600 in reserves, So D= 1/0.2 *$3600=$18000 3. Assume a model where the currency ratio is 0.2 (c = 0.2), the excess reserve ratio is 0.2 (e = 0.2), and the required reserve ratio is 0.2 (r = 0.2). What is the money multiplier? What change in the money supply results from an open market sale of $2,000? money multiplier m=(1+c)/(r+e+c) = (1+0.2)/(0.2+0.2+0.2)= 2 M=m*MB= -$2000*2=-$4000 The money supply will decline by $4000 4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
