#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

M2 is a measure of the money supply that includes all elements of M1 as well as "near money." M1 includes cash and checking deposits, while near money refers to savings deposits, money market securities, mutual funds and other time deposits.

M1 ( in billions)

Currency in circulation= \$100

Checkable deposits =     \$300

Travelers checks=         \$   50

Savings deposits=          \$ 75

M2 ( in billions)

Small-denomination time deposits= \$700

 Money Market Mutual Funds (individuals)= \$500

M2= M1+ M2 money supply=

M1= \$100 + \$300 +\$50 + \$75=525

M2=\$525+(\$700+\$500)=\$525+\$1,200=\$1,725. Answer is C.
