Analysis of Interest Rate Changes (MCQ Revision Questions)

Question 1 Reasoning:

Impact of government sale of bonds to the commercial banks

  • Sale of government bonds e.g. to the commercial banks
  • Banks pay for the bonds with cash
  • This reduces the liquidity of the banking system
  • Makes commercial banks less able to lend out to borrowers
  • Squeezes the supply of credit
  • I.e. a contractionary monetary policy
  • This is the opposite of quantitative easing
