Events in American Banking
Date    Event in American Banking

1776    American Revolution
1775 – To finance the American Revolution, the Continental
            Congress printed the nation’s first paper money,
            which became known as “Continentals.”

        Unfortunately, they produced too much, it led to
            Inflation, making it ―utterly worthless‖—their
            phrase was “Not worth a Continental”
1775 –    Debate over Role of Government Bank:

          Supported by:                    Supported by:
             Alexander Hamilton                Thomas Jefferson
                                                (Andrew Jackson)

          ***It is NOT specifically stated in the Constitution
          to establish a national Bank***
1791 Congress established the First National Bank of the
      United States, headquartered in Philadelphia, with
      Alexander Hamilton in charge!

      Most people felt uncomfortable about the Bank.

      In 1811, the charter (license to operate) was NOT
1819    Congress rules the National Bank is

1816 - In 1816, Congress issued a new charter for the
1836 Second Bank of the United States to eliminate
        chaos caused by state banks.

        Andrew Jackson was against this. Unfortunately,
        in 1828, he became President of the U.S.

        When the bank was up for renewal in 1836, he did
        NOT renew the charter.
1836 – State-chartered banks and unchartered banks began
1865   issuing Specie (any monetary gold or silver—coins or

        Sometimes referred to as the “Wildcat Era.” Wildcat
        banks were located at the edge of town with a high rate
        of failure.
        Other issues: bank runs, no government regulations,
        many currencies.
By 1860: Approximately 8,000
different currencies existed in
       the United States
1861 Civil War begins

     United States Treasury issues 1st paper currency since
     the Continental, called Greenbacks (paper currency for
     the North printed with Green ink.) The South’s
     currency was backed by cotton.
1863 - Establishment of the National Banking Act of
       1863, which allowed the Federal government to
       chartered banks and required adequate gold and
       silver to cover their banknotes.

       An amendment to created a uniform currency
       for the nation. Chaos occurred because not only
       was there a national bank, but there was also
       state banks.
1863 - Meanwhile, Bank runs (unexpected cash
1893   withdrawals) continued to occur because the banks
       only carried a small percentage of deposits on hand
       and did NOT have enough to cover large amounts
       of deposits in a short amount of time.

        This caused many banks to fail / go bankrupt!

        Establishment of the Gold Standard (A monetary
        system in which paper money and coins are equal
        to the value of a certain amount of gold)
1893   A banking panic triggered the worst Depression

          in history up until this time, which was mainly

          caused by:

       1) failure of businesses / banks,

       2) widespread unemployment

       3) falling prices and wages.
1893    The economy stabilized only after the intervention
             of the financial mogul J.P. Morgan.
1907   A severe banking panic was caused by
       Speculation (definition: practice of buying or selling
       stocks, commodities, land, or other assets hoping to
       take advantage of an expected rise or fall in price).

       J.P. Morgan was called upon to avert disaster.

       As a result, people began to ask for a change in the
       central banking system.
******** President Woodrow Wilson aided in the
         establishment of the Federal Reserve System
         (FED), the nation’s new decentralized central
         banking system

1914-    World War I
 Who was the U.S. President
    from 1929 – 1933?

• Herbert Hoover
          Herbert Hoover
• Hoover Hotel: Cardboard Box

• Hoovervilles: Multiple cardboard boxes

• Hoover Flag: Empty pockets turned
  inside out
1929 - October 1929, the stock market Crashed
1933   causing the U.S. to go into the worst
        Depression in its history. From 1930 until
        1933, 10,000 banks failed! In March 1933,
        President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR)
        declared a bank holiday because he
        wanted to close banks to avoid more ―runs‖
        on the banks. Some people believed the
        Federal Reserve (FED) was to blame
        for not pursuing policies to lessen the
        economic severity.
1933 Congress passed the Banking Act of 1933 also
      known as Glass-Steagell Act, including:

      1) The establishment of the Federal Deposit
         Insurance Corporation (FDIC), which created
         the government’s responsibility of deposits
         (today for up to $100,000) if the bank fails.

      2) Placed Open Market Operations under the

      Also, the gold standard ended.
1935    The Banking Act 1935 called for further
        changes to the Fed’s structure, including:
          1) The creation of the Federal Open Market
            Committee (FOMC) as a separate legal entity
          2) Establishment of members’ terms at
             14 years.

1939-   World War II

1945    Employment Act added the goal of promoting
          maximum employment to list of the Fed’s
1950-   Korean Conflict
        Vietnam Conflict
        (Longest U.S. involvement in history)

        Inflation skyrocketed as producer and consumer
        prices rose, especially including the prices of
        Oil soared.

        The federal deficit more than doubled.
       Humphrey-Hawkins Act required the Fed chairman
1978      to report to Congress twice annually on
          monetary policy goals and objectives.

1980   Monetary Control Act of 1980 required the Fed to
          establish reserve requirements for all eligible
          financial institutions
1990’s October 19, 1987, two months after

       Alan Greenspan became the Fed Chairman, the
       stock market crashed! Greenspan ordered the
       Fed to issue a one-sentence statement before
       the start of trading on October 20:

       ―The Federal Reserve, consistent with its
       responsibilities as the nation’s central bank,
       affirmed today its readiness to serve as a source
       of liquidity to supports the economic and
       financial system.‖
1990’s This decade was marked by generally declining
        inflation and the longest peacetime economic
       expansion in our country’s history (10 years of
Sept.   Terrorist attacks on New York, Washington,
2001    and Pennsylvania.

        The Fed issued a one-sentence statement
        reminiscent of its announcement in 1987:

           ―The Federal Reserve System is open and
           operating. The discount window is available
           to meet liquidity needs.‖
Sept.     In the days that followed, the Fed lowered
2001      interest rates and loaned more than $45 billion
(cont.)   to financial institutions in order to provide
          stability to the U.S. economy.

   money in the economy?
• Interest rates increase
• Bankers lend more money
• Consumers borrow more money
• Consumers spend more money
• Prices rise
           Inflation Rate
• The percentage rate of change in price
  level over time

• (CPI new - CPI old) x 100
         CPI old
• A sustained drop in the price level
        Purchasing Power
• The ability to purchase goods and

• As prices rise, the purchasing power of
  money declines

  power of money increases
            Price Index
• A measurement that shows how the
  average price of a standard group of
  goods changes over time by comparing
  averages from earlier years

• The price index determined by
  measuring the price of a standard group
  of goods meant to represent the ―market
  basket‖ of a typical urban consumer

• Computed every month
           Market Basket
• Monthly expenditures of a family
• Readjusted every 10 years
        To determine CPI:

• Cost of market basket in Current Year
  Cost of market basket in Base Year

• Measures the average change over
  time in the selling prices received by
  domestic producers for their output

• Examples:
  – agriculture, forestry, fisheries, mining,
    scrap, and manufacturing

  – transportation, retail trade, insurance, real
    estate, health, legal, and professional
         Types of Inflation
• Creeping Inflation
• Chronic Inflation
• Hyperinflation
        Creeping Inflation
• Inflation remains LOW (1-3%)
          Chronic Inflation
• Inflation rises steadily from month to
  month over a long period of time
• Inflation that is out of control
• Can go as high as 100-500% per month
In 1923 Germany, prices skyrocketed
  more than 2,000 percent in just one

Today, that would shoot up the price of
 bread from $1.00 to $21.00
       Causes of Inflation
• Quantity Theory
• Demand-Pull Theory
• Cost-Push Theory
         Quantity Theory
• Too much money in an economy
  causes inflation

• Should measure real GDP to watch
  nation’s productivity
      Demand-Pull Theory
• Inflation occurs when demand for goods
  and services EXCEEDS existing
        Cost-Push Theory
• Inflation occurs when producers raise
  prices in order to meet increased costs
Effects of Inflation
1) Purchasing power of money declines
2) If wages increase to match inflation, a
      worker’s real income stays the same
       Income and Inflation
• If Income and Inflation increase at the
  SAME level, you ―break even‖
