Lesson 20: Federal Reserve System | Unit 3: The Fed Pyramid Page: 10 of 20

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

Commercial banks form the base of the Federal Reserve pyramid.

Prior to the 1980's:

  • The Fed automatically included only national banks.
  • State and local banks could chose to become members of the Fed.
  • S&Ls, credit unions, and mutual savings banks didn't offer checking accounts and were not part of the system.

Legislation passed in the 1980's brought all checkable-deposit-issuing institutions into the Federal Reserve System.

  • The Federal Reserve pyramid rests on the non-bank public: households, businesses, and government agencies.

INFLATION CAUSES

Inflation, the persistent increase in the average price level, can be caused by an increase in aggregate demand or a decrease in aggregate supply. This suggests two basics sources, causes, or types of inflation--demand-pull inflation and cost-push inflation. While short-term bouts of inflation (up to several months) can result from anything (determinant) that might cause either increases in aggregate demand or decreases in aggregate supply, long-term inflation (a year or more) is possible ONLY through persistent increases in the money supply. As such, while demand-pull inflation and cost-push inflation are convenient ways to catalog the transmission mechanisms of inflation, the ultimate CAUSE of inflation is money.
