eco 372 week 3 DQ
Initially, money is created by Fed by printing bills and coins. But, in an economy there is much more money than the currency in calculation. If the reserve requirement is 20% and the bank loans out all deposits minus required reserve, a $100 deposit will create $5000. How is it possible? Please see the following table:

Bank Gets Bank Keeps
(Reserve Ratio: 20%) Bank Loans (80%) = Person Borrows
Initial deposit 10,000 2,000 8,000
Second stage 8,000 1,600 6,400
Third stage 6,400 1,280 5,120
Fourth stage 5,120 1,024 4,096
Fifth stage 4,096 819 3,277
Sixth stage 3,277 656 2,621
