  3. Video Tutorial: ECON LINKS PAGE - VIDEO TUTORIALS…Scroll down to MACROECONOMICS - Episode #29: What Is Money (4:28) EPISODE #29: WHAT IS MONEY?
  4. MONEY…

    …is an object or thing which is accepted as a payment for goods or to settle debts
  6. 5 characteristics of money: Generally acceptable Durable (for use in multiple transactions) Portable (easy to carry and use) Divisible (bills & coins of graduated amounts) Scarce
  7. BARTER! Trade of goods for other goods Inefficient because it requires a DOUBLE COINCIDENCE OF WANTS (You gotta’ have exactly what I want, and I gotta’ have exactly what you want MONEY replaces barter as a means of acquiring goods
  8. KINDS of MONEY: COMMODITY MONEY : gets its value from what it’s made from a usable good with INTRINSIC value precious metals like gold, silver cigarettes or chocolate bars in WWII FIAT MONEY: gets its value from a legal decree little or NO intrinsic or useful value on its own
  9. THE MONEY SUPPLY Is the stock of liquid assets in a given economy, which can be exchanged for goods and services It is NOT merely the amount of CURRENCY! LIQUIDITY: is how easily an asset can be converted into currency CURRENCY: money in the form of paper or coins PAPER MONEY can be backed by Commodity Fiat
  10. CURRNECY money in the form of paper or coins can be backed by Commodity Fiat
  11. Other forms besides currency: DEMAND DEPOSITS: stored in a bank account can be withdrawn at any time upon demand Also called CHECKABLE DEPOSITS TIME DEPOSITS: stored in accounts at banks, but… cannot be withdrawn on demand without a substantial penalty Ex.: CD – certificate of deposit – 6 mo., 1 yr., etc. MONEY MARKET ACCOUNTS: stricter rules than DEMAND, but… looser rules than TIME DEPOSITS
  12. THE MONEY SUPPLY: M1: extremely LIQUID Currency Traveler’s checks Demand Deposits M2: broader and less liquid M1 PLUS Money in SAVINGS ACCOUNTS & shorter TIME DEPOSITS (money market accounts) M3: M1 and M2 + more ILLIQUID forms (long time deposits) L: broadest definition – M1, M2, M3, and commercial papers and deeds
  13. The Equation of Exchange: MV = PQ M= the stock of money (how much) V=the velocity of money (how often it turns over or changes hands) Q=is the output of goods and services (quantity) P=is the average current price
  14. FRACTIONAL RESERVE BANKING: How banks MAKE money (a profit): YOU deposit your money at interest THEY lend it out or invest it at interest The banks PAY you and keep the difference! How banks CREATE money (increase the money supply): through FRACTIONAL RESERVE BANKING
  15. Video Tutorials : Creating Money with Fractional Reserve Banking ECON LINKS PAGE - VIDEO TUTORIALS…Scroll down and choose MACROECONOMICS: EPISODE #30: Creating Money  (3:55) EPISODE #30: Creating Money (3:55) ECONOMICS USA SERIES– VIDEO ON DEMAND Program #20: The Banking System(30:00)
  16. THE RESERVE REQUIREMENT: The % of DEMAND deposits which a bank has to keep on hand in the vault to cover withdrawals Rate is set by the FEDERAL RESERVE BOARD
  17. What BANKS do when they can’t cover all the day’s demands: BORROW: From the FEDERAL RESERVE BANK The DISCOUNT RATE: the interest rate which the Fed charges banks for loans BORROW: From OTHER BANKS The FEDERAL FUNDS RATE: the interest rate which banks charge banks
  18. Gresham’s Law Sir Thomas Gresham bad money drives good money out of circulation. THEN…It was about DEBASEMENT the reduction of a coin’s precious metal content. Because non-debased coins, or ‘‘good money,’’ were more valuable, people hoarded these coins and spent the debased ‘‘bad money.’’ NOW…It’s about INFLATION
