Example text

However, as the various agents react to their new situation, loans rise faster than deposits, and eventually, despite the fact that interest rates on bills and bonds are fixed by assumption, banks must raise the rates of interest on time deposits (and hence loans) to recover the target norm on secondary reserve requirements. 9 At first sight, these results are rather congruent with the structuralist story and Godley’s stock–flow comprehensive model would seem to provide ammunition against horizontalism.

Indeed, the word accommodation is nowhere to be found in the index of Moore’s (1988) book. Regretfully, New Keynesian authors never make any acknowledgment of the previous post-Keynesian literature on endogenous money – out of ignorance or dishonesty? The current Swedish monetary framework, which arose from an overdraft system, was put in place by the Endogenous money: accommodationist 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 31 Riksbank in 1994 and features many similarities with the Canadian framework. A highly pedagogical presentation of the Swedish operating procedures is provided by Mitlid and Vesterlund (2001).

Structuralists represent credit rationing through rising credit supply curves (Dow, 1996). How do horizontalists represent credit rationing? Horizontalists consider that credit rationing acts as a shift variable in regression analysis (Arestis and Eichner, 1988, p. 1010). Thus credit rationing has nothing to do with the slope of the credit supply curve.
