In effect, a bank customer buys a legal claim from a bank with the understanding that the bank will automatically "repurchase" this legal claim back after a specified time period. Repurchase agreements were original developed as a round about means of paying interest on business checking, which such interest paying was legally prohibited. Repurchase agreements are near monies added to M1 to obtain broader monetary aggregates, M2 and M3.

LAW OF DEMAND: The inverse relationship between demand price and the quantity demanded, ceteris paribus. This fundamental economic principle indicates that as the price of a commodity decreases, then the quantity of the commodity that buyers are able and willing to purchase in a given period of time, if other factors are held constant, increases. This law is incredibly important to the study of economics. If you compiled a top ten list of economically important laws, the law of demand would be right there at the top.

MARGINAL BENEFIT OF SEARCH

The incremental benefit generated by additional search effort is the marginal benefit of search. Marginal benefit of search, also termed marginal search benefit, is comparable to marginal revenue of short-run production analysis and marginal utility of consumer demand theory. Marginal benefit of search decreases with an increase in search effort and is represented by the marginal benefit of search curve. This is one half of the efficient information search decision. The other is marginal cost of search.
