The Demand for Money
A Scenario…
Two financial assets to choose from
Money: Used for transactions
(currency and checkable deposits)
Bonds: Cannot be used for
transactions and pays a positive
interest rate (i)

The Demand for Money
A Scenario…
The proportion of money and bonds
depend on:
 The interest rate on bond
Econ 302

Slide #5
The Demand for Money
A Scenario…
The proportion of money and bonds depend on
the interest rate on bonds:
The interest rate on bonds:
•When the interest rate (i) increases the incentive to hold
bonds increases
•At high i, you may choose to reduce your money
holdings to two weeks or \$500 (spending = \$1000/month)
and increase bond holdings to \$11,500
Question: If i=0, how much would you hold
in bonds?

The Demand for Money
A Summary:
The demand for money (Md) depends on:
•The level of transactions which are
proportional to nominal income (\$Y)
•The interest rate on bonds

The Determination of the Interest Rates: I
Open Market Operations:
•Buying and selling government bonds by the
central bank
•Buy bonds to increase the money supply (and
lower the interest rate)
•Sell bonds to decrease the money supply (and
raise the interest rate)

The Determination of the Interest Rates: I
Monetary Policy and Open Market Operations
Expansionary Open Market Operation: Increase the Money Supply and
Lower the interest rate
Step 1: Central bank buys bonds.
Step 2: The central bank injects money (currency)
into the economy to pay for the bonds.
Step 3: The demand for bonds increases, causing
the price of bonds to rise.
Step 4: When the price of bonds increases,
the interest rate falls.

Slide #29
The Determination of the Interest Rates: I
A Summary:
• i is determined by MD & MS
• Central bank changes i by changing MS
• Central bank changes MS with open market
operations
• Buying bonds increases the MS and
reduces i
• Selling bonds decreases the MS and
increases i

Interest rates in an economy with currency and checkable deposits
What banks do:
Banks are financial intermediaries-• They receive funds (deposits) which
are liabilities
• They make loans and buy bonds which
are assets

The Determination of the Interest Rates: II
Why do banks hold reserves?
1. To cover the cash withdrawls by depositors.
2. To cover the payment of checks which are
deposited in other banks.
3. To maintain the legal reserve requirement
(10%) set by the Fed (Reserve ratio =
Reserves  checkable deposits).

Assume:
•C represents the fixed proportion of money
people hold as currency (US: C=.4)
•1-C is the proportion of money held as
checkable deposits.

Slide #36
The Determination of the Interest Rates: II
The demand for money
Assume:
The demand for currency is: CUd
The demand for checkable deposits is: Dd
CUd = cMd:

The Determination of the Interest Rates: II
The demand for reserves
Assume:
:
