Reserve requirements are designed to assist the federal government in the implementation of its monetary policy. In very basic terms, the level of reserves that must be maintained affects the monetary supply. Higher reserves reduce the monetary supply and lower reserves increase the monetary supply. Therefore, if the purpose of the monetary policy is to reduce the availability of lendable money, reserves would be increased. If the policy is to increase the number of lendable funds, then reserve requirements would be reduced. To say the least, the Federal Reserve Board maintains very tight control over the reserve requirements in all financial institutions.
