B) downward sloping to the lower right. C) upward sloping to the upper right. 6) Which of the following statements about the demand and supply of money is most accurate? People who are: A) holding money when interest rates are lower will try to increase their money balances and, as a result, the supply of money increases. B) holding money when interest rates are higher will try to reduce their money balances and, as a result, the demand for money decreases. C) buying bonds to reduce their money balances will increase the demand for bonds with an associated increase in interest rates. 7) In a recent economic forum meeting, Jason Federmeyer of the Bank of Detroit, and Lawrence Lobovsky of the Bank of Tulsa, were discussing the demand for money and how it has changed over the years. Federmeyer made the following two statements to Lobovsky: Statement 1: Financial innovation has significantly affected the demand for money. The increased use of credit cards and debit cards, interest-bearing checking accounts, internet banking and even the large number of ATMs around the world have all helped to increase the demand for money above what it would have been if only the increase in real GDP were at work. Statement 2: Although the quantity of money demanded is largely determined by interest rates, the supply of money is determined by the central bank and is independent of interest rates. Are Statement 1 and Statement 2 as made by Federmeyer CORRECT? Statement 1 Statement 2 A) Incorrect Correct B) Incorrect Incorrect C) Correct Correct 8) If households are holding larger real money balances than they desire, which of the following is least likely? A) The interest rate is higher than its equilibrium rate in the market for real money balances. B) The central bank must sell securities to absorb the excess money supply and establish equilibrium.
