Banks as Transmission Mechanism

Banks as Transmission Mechanism

The Federal Reverse, banks and the public are essential in the process of monetary expansion.

Banks expand the money supply by loaning money to the public. Thus, credit is necessary to increase domestic currency in circulation and hence effective demand, production, and employment.
