  • Banknotes and coins in the hands of the public
  • Reserves of the commercial banks in the central banks
  • MB = C + R
  • Money supply(MS):
  • Banknotes and coins in the hands of the public
  • Deposits at the commercial banks
  • MS = C + D

  • mm = MS/MB
  • MS = C + D = C x D/D + D = D (C/D + 1)
  • MB = C + R = C + rrD + er =
  • = C x D/D + rrD + er x D/D =
  • = D (C/D + rr + er/D)
  • mm = (C/D + 1)/(r + er/D + C/D)
  • Money multiplier vs. deposit multiplier
  • Deposit multiplier
  • Dm = 1/rr
  • Shows the maximum increase in the MS as a result of an increase in reserves
  • Money multiplier
  • Mm = (C/D + 1)/(rr + er /D + C/D)
  • Shows the actual increase in MS as a result of an increase in reserves
  • Instruments of the monetary policy
  • open market operations,
  • standing facilities,
  • minimum reserve requirements for credit institutions.
  • Standing facilities
  • The Eurosystem offers credit institutions two standing facilities:
  • Marginal lending facility in order to obtain overnight liquidity from the central bank, against the presentation of sufficient eligible assets;
  • Deposit facility in order to make overnight deposits with the central bank.
  • The interest rates on the marginal lending and deposit facilities normally provide a ceiling and a floor for the overnight market interest rate.
