The Federal Funds Market under Bank Deregulation
The introduction of competitive interest rates on deposits is shown to effect the optimal decisions of banks by altering their optimal forecast of the federal-funds rate. The movement toward co mpetitive deposit rates increases the size of the monetary base neces sary for the Fed to maintain its deposit targets when deposits and the monetary base are substitutes. In addition there is less uncertainty in the federal-funds market under competitive deposit rates when deposits and the monetary base are substitutes, and the source of uncertainty is not from the supply of deposits.
