Open market operations versus discount loans

Consider an expansionary open market operation. Suppose the Federal Reserve buys government securities from the nonbank public.

Suppose that the sellers of government securities deposit the checks drawn on the New York Fed into their bank account. Then, ceteris paribus, bank reserves _________ (increase, decrease, or does not change) currency in circulation ____________ (increase, decrease, or does not change), and thus the monetary base will _________ (decrease or increase)

Suppose now that the Federal Reserve wants to increase the monetary base by increasing bank reserves only. Which of the following actions enables the Fed to achieve its goal?

1.Require commercial banks to repay discount loans

2. Lend to the non-banking public at the discount window

3.Lend to commercial banks at the discount window

4. Require the non-banking public to repay discount loans

By lending to commercial banks through the discount window, the Federal Reserve alters _____________ (currency in circulation, the discount rate, borrowed reserves, prices of government securities, or nonborrowed reserves) and thus affects ____________ ( prices of government securities, banks’ willingness to borrow funds, the discount rate, the monetary base)

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"
Rajab M.Rajab M. has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied
