...– 9 Chapter 17 – Homework Questions 1. Rank the following bank assets from most liquid to least liquid: a. Commercial Loans 3 b. Securities 2 c. Reserves 1 d. Physical Capital 4 2. If the president of a bank told you that the bank was so well run that it never had to call in loans, sell securities or borrow as a result of a deposit outflow, would you be willing to buy stock in that bank? Why or why not? No, because the bank president is not managing the bank well. The fact that the bank has never incurred costs as a result of a deposit outflow means that the bank is holding a lot of reserves that do not earn any interest. Thus the bank’s profits are low, and stock in the bank is not a good investment. 3. If the bank you own has no excess reserves and a sound customer comes in asking for a loan, should you automatically turn the customer down, explaining that you don’t have any excess reserves to loan out? Why or why not? What options are available for you to provide the funds your customer needs? No. When you turn a customer down, you may lose that customer’s business forever, which is extremely costly. Instead, you might go out and borrow from other banks, corporations, or the Fed to obtain funds so that you can make the customer’s loan. Alternatively, you might sell negotiable CDs or some of your securities to acquire the necessary funds. 4. Why has the development of overnight loan markets made it more likely that banks......
