8 The Fed's reserve requirement ratio can reduce the monetary base.



9 If bankers want to retain reserves of 25% against all deposits, if the Fed issues $100 billion in currency, and if private individuals keep all money in banks, then once the banks are fully loaned up, the money supply will consist of $400 billion in demand deposits.
