1 Chapter 18: Money Supply & Money Demand

2 Federal Reserve System, FED The central bank of the U.S. Independent decision making unit with regional banks In charge of money supply management and economic stabilization

3 Money Supply M = C + D C = Currency: coins & bills (25%) D = Demand Deposits: checking account deposits (75%)

4 Money Supply Line The quantity of money in circulation is controlled by the central bank in real value Quantity of Money Interest Rate (%) (M/P) s

5 Fractional Banking System Banks are required by law to hold a percentage of all deposits with the FED to be able to return the deposits: –R = reserves: deposits –RR = required reserves: reserves held by the FED – rr = reserve-deposit ratio: percentage determined by the FED (rr = R/D) –ER = excess reserves: reserves used by banks to lend or investment

6 Fractional Banking System R = RR + ER RR = rr R ER = (1 – rr)R Banks lending and investing ER will create money through a multiplier effect

7 A Model of Money Supply The monetary base (B) is money held by the public in currency and by banks as reserves R B = C + R The currency-deposit ratio (cr) is the amount of currency people hold as a fraction of their demand deposits cr = C / D

8 A Model of Money Supply Divide M = C + D by B = C + R: M/B = (C + D) / (C + R) Divide the numerator and denominator by D: M/B = (C/D + 1) / (C/D + R/D) M/B = (cr + 1) / (cr + rr) M = [(cr + 1) / (cr + rr)]B = m B Define money multiplier m = (cr + 1) / (cr + rr),so far any $1 increase in the monetary base, money supply increases by $m.

9 A Model of Money Supply Example: B = $500 billion, cr = 0.6 and rr = 0.1: m =( ) / ( ) = 2.3 M = 2.3(500) = $1,150 billion

10 Change in Money Supply The money supply is proportional to the monetary base. So, an increase in B increases M m -fold. The lower the reserve-deposit ratio, the more loans banks make and the higher is the money multiplier The lower the currency deposit ratio, the fewer dollars of the monetary base the public holds as currency and the lower is the money multiplier

11 Tools of Monetary Policy Reserve-deposit ratio: ratio of cash reserves to deposits that banks are required to maintain By lowering the ratio, banks will have more reserves to lend and invest, increasing the money supply

12 Tools of Monetary Policy Discount rate: rate of interest the FED charges on loans to banks By lowering the rate, banks encourage borrowing from the FED and lending to the public, increasing the money supply

13 Tools of Monetary Policy Open Market Operations: FEDs purchases and sales of government bonds By purchasing bonds and paying the sellers, the FED increases the money supply

14 Expansionary Monetary Policy Increase the money supply by any one or combination of the above tools Reduce the interest rate to encourage investment Increase employment & income

15 Money Demand The amount of money demanded for transaction and speculative purposes depends: personal income and interest rate At any level of personal income, quantity demanded of money is a negative function of interest rate; (M/P) d = L(i, Y)

16 Money Demand Line Quantity of Money Interest Rate (%) (M/P) d M/P = L(Y, i) Y = income i = interest rate

17 Money Market Equilibrium Quantity of Money Interest Rate (%) (M/P) d 5 80 (M/P) s

18 Expansionary Monetary Policy Quantity of Money Interest Rate (%) (M/P) d 5 80 (M 1 /P) s (M 2 /P) s 4 85

19 Portfolio Theory of Money Demand (M/P) d = L(r s, r b, π e, W) M/P = real money balances r s = expected real rate of return on stocks r b = expected real rate of return on bonds π e = expected rate of inflation W = real wealth (M/P) d is positively related to W and negatively affected by r s, r b, π e

20 The Baumol-Tobin Model Define –Y = transactionary money an individual holds in bank –N = annual number of trips to bank an individual makes to withdraw money –F = cost of a trip to the bank –i = nominal interest rate

21 Optimal Conditions Total cost of money withdrawal = Foregone interest + Cost of trips TC = iY/2N + FN The annual number of trips that minimizes the total cost of bank trips is N* = (iY/2F) 1/2 Average transactionary money holding is MH = Y /2N* = (YF/2i) 1/2

22 Optimal Conditions Cost Number of trip to bank, N Foregone interest = iY/2N Cost of bank trips = FN Total cost of bank withdrawal N*

23 Speculative Demand for Money Money individuals hold for investment in the financial market Near money consists of non-monetary, interest- bearing assets such as stocks and bonds

24 The Federal Funds Rate The short-term interest rate at which banks make loans to each other The FED uses this rate as the basis for its interest rate policy Taylors rule for the determination of the nominal federal funds rate: Inflation rate (Inflation rate + 2) – 0.5(GDP gap)

25 Actual vs. Taylors Rule
