Topic: Reserve Requirements <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

Reserve requirements are the regulations the Fed uses to ensure banks keep enough reserves to back deposits.
  • In principle, reserve requirements can be used to control the money supply. In practice, reserve requirement changes would cause serious bank instability.
  • The Federal Reserve System is charged with ensuring that banks keep enough reserves, through legal reserve requirements.
  • Reserve requirements change over the years, keeping pace with the changing structure of the banking system.
  • They are currently in the 1% to 3% for checkable deposits. These are the reserves that banks use to cash checks, process checks, and conduct daily business.

LABOR FORCE

The total number of people in an economy, society, or country willing and able to exert mental and/or physical efforts in productive activities. The labor force is a more technical term for the labor resource or labor supply. It includes both employed workers and unemployed workers. An official variation of this term is civilian labor force. While labor force may or may not include military personnel, the civilian labor force explicitly excludes the military. Labor and labor resources are the theoretical terms that economists like to banter about. Labor force and civilian labor force are the terms of choice for government policy makers, data-crunchers, and others who need precise labor resource numbers.
