Many Western countries avoid changing reserve requirements, since it could cause an immediate liquidity problem or banks with low excess reserves. Instead, these countries utilize open market operations, such as quantitative easing, to implement their monetary policy. The reserve ratio in the U.S. has been set at 10% for transactional deposits and 0% on time deposits.
The use of reserve ratios in monetary policy is instead most common in emerging markets. Countries like China have used reserve requirements as a way to combat inflation by raising them for its banks and reducing the available money supply. In fact, the country used the strategy extensively throughout the global economic decline in 2007 and 2010.
For example, a bank with $10 million in deposits must hold $1 million in reserves, if the bank reserve ratio is 10%. This means that only $9 million is available to be lent out in the form of bank loans. Lowering the bank reserve ratio therefore increases the amount of money available to be loaned in the banking system and vice versa for an increase in the bank reserve ratio.

With all due respect the Bank of International Settlements is the global governing body of all the individual central banks and investment banks, not the commercial banks. That means only the big banks can leverage so highely and probably on purpose with the initial mindset of eventually destroying the global economy on purpose.
1% to 3% capital requirement is preposterously insane regardless which way we look at it.
The central banks are private and when people talk about the bankers it should be taken for granted they mean central bank or investment banks. Commercial banks are different, at least I think so.
The banking cabal is said to have its roots in masonry, the highest masons are called the illuminati, and all is based on the knight templars who were hell bent on stealing christian rellics from jerusalem from the muslims. It is probably for this reason that masons STILL support israel and loathe(or pretend to loathe) muslims. Right wingers mistakengly offer their unconditional support to the illuminati to start ww3. The relics stored in solomons temple were never found.

Dollars will not matter, ownership is all that matters; ownership of land and resources that have been secured behind a mountain of laws and bureaucracy, backed by the military. The Elites have been expanding and imploding, expanding and imploding, and each time gathering the ownership and control by incorporating others into their structure but no ownership.
But relax, they are all mortal; Solomon said it best, All is vanity; what was high, will be brought low...as for you and I, take pleasure in the fruits of your labor, dance while you can.
