Topic: Intermediary <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

There are several types of financial intermediaries.

Note that:

  • Intermediaries bring together buyers and sellers.
  • Buyers and sellers often need an intermediary.
  • Banks perform a 'financial' intermediary function.
  • By maintaining financial deposits and making financial loans, banks navigate the financial side of the economy.

Other types of financial intermediaries include:

  • Insurance agencies, stock brokers, finance companies, mutual funds, and bond traders.

Their function:

  • All these entities divert household income away from consumption expenditures to investment.
  • Banks are important because they maintain checking accounts that are about 60% of the money supply.

AGGREGATE DEMAND SHIFTS

Changes in the aggregate demand determinants cause the aggregate demand curve to shift. The mechanism is comparable to that for market demand determinants and market demand. There are two alternatives--an increase in aggregate demand and a decrease in aggregate demand. An increase in spending by any of the four sectors--household, business, government, and foreign--shifts the aggregate demand curve to right. A decrease in spending by these four sectors shifts the aggregate demand curve to left.
