1) This section deals with increase money supply given two scenarios (see “a” and “b” below).
In Westlandia, the public holds 50% of money one (M1) in the form of currency, and the
required reserve ratio is 20%.
a) Estimate how much the money supply will increase in response to a new cash deposit of
$500 by completing the accompanying table.
(Hint: The first row shows that the bank must hold $100 in minimum reserves — 20% of the $500
deposit — against this deposit, leaving $400 in excess reserves that can be loaned out. However,
since the public wants to hold 50% of the loan in currency, only $400 × 0.5 = $200 of the loan will
be deposited in round 2 from the loan granted in Round 1.)
