Question: 3 PARTS

Suppose Never Bank (not the central bank), operating in (fictitious country) Neverland holds $100 million in deposits. Also, assume that banks in Neverland are supposed to maintain the (required) reserve ratio of 10%.

 

     (A)  Assume initially that Never Bank is the only bank in Neverland. State the effects on money supply if Never Bank decides not to make any loans. Compare this to the effect on money supply if, alternatively, Never Bank decides to loan out all its available deposits for loans. (compare both the scenarios in 150 words or less). (4marks) 

          (B)  What will be the effect on money supply if many banks start to open and operate in Neverland and they loan out all their available deposits. (explain in 100 words or less) (3 marks) 

           (C)  Go back to the scenario presented in Part a, where Never Bank is the only bank in Neverland.  Suppose, people of Neverland decide to withdraw their deposits with the Never Bank and keep their money with them as currency. What is the quantity of money in Neverland in this situation? State the assumption you made here. Compare the quantity of money in this situation with the one in ‘Part a’ where the Never Bank does not make any loans out of its deposits. (answer each in 50 words or less) (3 marks)
