    People give banks $$$. The Required Reserve Ratio, or 'RR', is a percentage of that $$$ that banks gotta keep. So let's do an example (yay!). Assume (you know what we make ourselves when we assume...) RR = 2, and a person puts $10,000 in a bank (*Word from the wise: never put your money into a bank. Banks are EVIL & you cant trust them. Keep your $$$ hidden under your mattress* - מזרונים)

    Money Supply can, however, shift whenever the Fed creates policy to increase/decrease the money supply. This is similar to the earlier discussion of how banks can "Create" money.

    Unemployment
    
    Unemployment, as defined by the International Labour Organization, occurs when people are without jobs and they have actively looked for work within the past four weeks. The unemployment rate is a measure of the prevalence of unemployment and it is calculated as a percentage by dividing the number of unemployed individuals by all individuals currently in the labor force.
