    I'm reading my management textbook and came across a section called "Banks as Creators of Money"

    Here's the example, FROM THE BOOK:

    Suppose a bank is required to have a reserve of 10% of all deposits.

    You deposit $100, Money that is held in reserve by the bank is $10, Money that the bank has to lend is $90.

    Total supply is $190.

    HOW? is the total supply $190 when you only deposited $100 initially?

    Then the question keeps going .....

    Suppose the bank lends that $90 to your friend. Your friend writes a cheque to McDonalds (or whatever) McDonalds' bank now ends up with a $90 deposit. Therefore:

    the Deposit is $90, Money held in reserve is $9 (10%). And money to lend is now $81.

    The total reserve for both situations above is $271... again i dont understand how..

    can someone please explain;u=42;u=9791;u=73395;u=9598;u=10099;u=13777;u=6799;u=7749;u=13232
