Money multiplier, Microeconomics

The Money Multiplier is explained below:

If you see carefully, the money multiplier is nothing but an inverse of a reserve ratio. Therefore, we can write MM = 1/rr, where rr is the reserve ratio. Usually, in stock terms we can write down, M2 = MM*M0 = (1/rr)*M0; and in flow terms we can write, ΔM2 = (1/rr)*ΔM0. The higher the reserve ratio, the higher will be the leakage, so to speak, from money creation process and so the lower the money multiplier. In the extreme case, when rr = 100%, MM is 1, and M2 = M0.

To complete our understanding of money supply process let us now zoom in on central bank’s balance sheet. To keep things easy, we’ll consider the balance sheet of State Bank of Nepal, SBN, abstracting from more complicated ones held by the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, the European Central Bank or the Bank of England. The choice of SBN is, however, for illustration purposes only and this does not reflect on SBN’s actual financials.
