Suppose you get a tax refund of \$20,000 and instead of spending it on items that had been
on your wish list for two years, you put it all in your checking account at the First
National Bank of Urbana. And if that deposit allows the bank to loan out \$17,000, then
the legal reserve requirement must be

a.0.15 percent

c.1.5 percent

d.8.5 percent

e.15 percent

92.              Suppose you get a tax refund of \$20,000 and instead of spending it on items that had been
on your wish list for two years, you put it all in your checking account at the First

the potential money multiplier must be

a.0.067

b.0.117

c.0.667

d.1.176

e.6.667

93.              If the potential money multiplier in the U.S. is 4, then a simple \$1 increase in demand
deposits—say a young child opening up her very own checking account—can
potentially create demand deposits (including the child’s \$1) of

a.\$40.00

b.\$4.00

c.\$2.50

d.\$0.40

e.\$0.25

94.              If the potential money multiplier in the U.S. is 5, then a \$1,000 increase in demand

95.              If the potential money multiplier in the U.S. is 4, then a \$2,000 increase in demand
deposits when banks hold excess reserves will result in which of the following?

the potential loans

c.the money supply will increase by \$8,000

d.the money supply will increase by more than \$8,000

e.the money supply, if it increases at all, will increase by less than \$8,000

96.              Suppose the economy is in a prosperity phase of the business cycle. Employment is high
and in the month of August, new demand deposits amounted to \$15,000 billion, which
