Government Bonds 300
Loans Outstanding 1800 Capital 200
Total 2200 Total 2200
(a) What is the value of reserves in the banking system is the value of deposits at the central bank - 90. So, the desired (target) reserve ratio of the commercial banks is rr = deposits at the central bank/loans = 90/1800*100% = 5%
The value of the money supply is 2200.
