  • Introduction: 'cranks and 'brave heretics: rethinking money and banking
           after the Great Financial Crisis

  • Some puzzles about money, finance and the monetary circuit
    • Authors: Smithin; J.
      Pages: 1259 - 1274
      Abstract: This paper discusses three puzzles about money and finance, having to do with the velocity of circulation, the Marxian concept of the monetary circuit and the deceptively simple question of whether there is enough money in existence at any point in time to purchase the full value of output. These issues take on particular significance at times of economic and financial crisis, but have often been neglected by the mainstream of the economics profession, leaving the field to Keynes’s ‘brave heretics’.

  • Towards an 'accounting view on money, banking and the macroeconomy:
           history, empirics, theory
    • Authors: Bezemer; D. J.
      Pages: 1275 - 1295
      Abstract: In this paper three views are considered which are traditionally associated with ‘money cranks’ and ‘brave heretics’. The first is that the credit nature of money has macroeconomic significance. The second is that financial development can be bad for economic growth. The third is that macroeconomic models need to be explicitly monetary macroeconomic models. It is argued that in each of these three areas, there has been a recent shift in mainstream economic opinion. This suggests new opportunities for meaningful debate between heterodox and orthodox schools on money and finance. It is further argued, following Skaggs (2003), that a common meeting ground could be an ‘accounting view’ of economics. This is a mode of macroeconomic analysis which explicitly uses accounting definitions, identities (that credit is also debt, or that flows of a variable affect the stock of that variable) or accounting methods (e.g. decomposing different kinds of liabilities, or linking flows of liquidity to flows of transactions) to structure and direct the analysis. The accounting view is highly pluralist yet clearly defined. I discuss its applications to each of the three views.

  • Modern Money Theory and the facts of experience
    • Authors: Nersisyan, Y; Wray, L. R.
      Pages: 1297 - 1316
      Abstract: This paper discusses Modern Money Theory (MMT) with a particular focus on the role of the state in its monetary system and the nature of money. It addresses the main differences between the orthodox, heterodox and MMT approaches to monetary theory while reconciling endogenous money theory with the state money approach. By emphasising the symmetry between how banks create money as they finance private spending and how the government creates money when it finances its own spending, we clarify some of the misconceptions surrounding MMT while showing that it is more consistent with the facts of experience. Furthermore, we argue that MMT’s insistence that government spending or lending must precede bond sales is consistent with the Keynesian emphasis on effective demand as the driving force behind income and saving. We delve into MMT’s implications for monetary and fiscal policy, with a particular focus on the eurozone. We conclude our paper by discussing two proposals of ‘monetary cranks’: narrow banking and government issue of debt-free money. This allows us to re-emphasise MMT’s views on the nature of money.

  • Government monetary and fiscal operations: generalising the endogenous
           money approach
    • Authors: Tymoigne; E.
      Pages: 1317 - 1332
      Abstract: The traditional endogenous money approach can be generalised substantially by including the insights of Modern Money Theory regarding the necessary coordination of fiscal and monetary policies. A monetarily sovereign government is composed of two entities involved in the issuance and redemption of government monetary instruments. As such, one should include the role of the Treasury in monetary policy and the role of the central bank in fiscal policy. The paper suggests a simple way to model that interaction, shows some of the theoretical insights that can be drawn from that interaction and illustrates the relevance of that interaction with the monetary and fiscal practices of the US Treasury and the Federal Reserve over the past century. Times of stress in the monetary system, such as the recent Great Recession, usually bring to light more forcefully this necessary interaction.

  • Full Reserve Banking: More 'Cranks Than 'Brave Heretics
    • Authors: Fontana, G; Sawyer, M.
      Pages: 1333 - 1350
      Abstract: This paper analyses the main features and policy implications of full reserve banking (FRB) proposals. It argues that whilst FRB advocates recognize the essential endogeneity of the money creation process, they have failed to understand the Post Keynesian and monetary circuitist analyses of endogenous money, which leads them to analytical errors, including: lending activity creates seigniorage privilege for commercial banks; inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon; the inability of distinguishing the actual from the planned supply of bank loans, and money to be spent from money hoarded; and the debt-free money proposition. The paper also argues that an FRB system is likely to exacerbate financial instability for several reasons, including: the obsessive focus on commercial banks, while ignoring non-bank financial intermediaries and shadow banking; a blind fascination for the safety and security of the payment system, with little consideration for the financing needs of capitalist economies; and an inherent deflationary bias. Furthermore, FRB arrangements would soon be undermined by the development of alternative near-moneys. Finally, FRB will nullify the automatic stabilisers of fiscal policy and lead to a de facto dominance of monetary policy and unelected central bankers over fiscal policy and democratic decision making.

  • A response to critiques of 'full reserve banking
    • Authors: Dyson, B; Hodgson, G, van Lerven, F.
      Pages: 1351 - 1361
      Abstract: In this response to critiques of ‘full reserve banking’ or ‘sovereign money’ proposals, we challenge four of the main criticisms made by Fontana and Sawyer (this issue): (i) the impact of the proposal on government finances and fiscal policy; (ii) the impact of the proposal on the supply of credit to the real economy; (iii) the danger of private money creation re-emerging in the shadow banking sector; and (iv) the argument that shadow banking, not commercial banking, is the real source of financial instability.

  • The Political Economy of Monetary Reform
    • Authors: Dow; S.
      Pages: 1363 - 1376
      Abstract: Proposals to reform money and banking in the wake of the recent crisis appeal to populist politics on the left and the right: if banks caused the crisis, then their power must be curtailed to prevent a recurrence. Many of these proposals echo ideas which gained attention in the wake of the Great Depression. The purpose of this paper is to consider proposals for reform of money and banking current in Canada in the 1930s, in particular plans for social credit and for social reconstruction, some of which were translated into policy. While both sets of ideas involved a markedly increased role for the state in money and banking, the underlying ontology, political philosophy and theoretical rationale were rather different. The result was different views as to the nature of the problem and the feasibility of different policy solutions.

  • Failures on the market and market failures: a complementary currency for
           bankruptcy procedures
    • Authors: Amato, M; Fantacci, L.
      Pages: 1377 - 1395
      Abstract: One of the most widespread implications of the Great Financial Crisis has been the increase in bankruptcies across advanced economies. The traditional approach to the problem of insolvencies is constrained by deeply ingrained concepts of money and credit and by the institutions in which those concepts are embodied, according to which the only way to discharge a debt is a payment in money. This paper deals with a peculiar project elaborated within the Italian Ministry of Justice to address the problem of the growing amount of uncollectibles involved in bankruptcy procedures. The project entails a new form of articulation between money and credit, which overturns the traditional logic of liquidation by transforming creditors of bankruptcy procedures, passively waiting to be paid, into active operators, capable of sustaining demand. This goal is pursued by converting part of their credits into purchasing power that can be immediately spent in the auctions for the assets of bankrupt companies, thereby increasing the efficiency of bankruptcy procedures, accelerating the reallocation of assets and maximising the satisfaction of creditors. The projects may be seen as a complementary currency characterised by a functional, and not by a territorial, delimitation. It incorporates some of the features that have been recently experimented with, with varying degree of success, within both the official and alternative monetary systems: endogenous money creation, targeted loans and demurrage. The present paper aims at illustrating the theoretical underpinnings of the project and its implication for the question of devising an alternative to current financial institutions.

  • Local clearing unions as stabilizers of local economic systems: a stock
           flow consistent perspective
    • Authors: Lucarelli, S; Gobbi, L.
      Pages: 1397 - 1420
      Abstract: Various examples of complementary currencies have recently emerged in Europe in response to the impact of the 2007 financial crisis. They have been variously labelled as social, local and alternative money but their economic meaning has still to be discussed. On the one hand, they have been hailed as innovative tools for socio-territorial policies with a focus on localist, anti-globalist and anti-capitalist values. On the other, the emphasis on the value of currencies as instruments of alternative territorial development runs the risk of overshadowing issues concerning the specific features of such projects. The first part of this paper puts forward an interpretation of the current situation as a crisis of the liquidity principle and suggests that the principle of clearing instead represents the primary point of reference for any institutional arrangement aimed at restoring a balanced relationship between lenders and borrowers.A critical review of known European complementary monetary circuits is followed by examination of the Sardex clearing system. The paper then goes on to argue by means of a stock-flow consistent model that complementary monetary circuits can serve to stabilise local economic systems. In particular, a local clearing union for local exchanges has the effect of stabilising the profits of firms while attenuating the impact of the credit crunch at same time.

  • Making sense of a crank case: monetary diversity in Argentina (1999-2003)
    • Authors: Gomez, G. M; Dini, P.
      Pages: 1421 - 1437
      Abstract: Based on empirical data, this study discusses the introduction, acceptance and circulation of two complementary currencies in Argentina that do not fit well in the main approaches to the nature of money. These two monetary circuits, provincial and community currencies, were introduced as units of account to denominate the value of debt and circulated as means of payment to overcome monetary stringency during the crisis of 1999–2003. After discussing several theories on the nature of money, we reflect on the institutional significance of currency circuits as concurrent and rather stable pairs of trade and money. We suggest that several theories of money need to be combined to account for the variety and heterogeneity of daily monetary practices in a broad spectrum of countries.

  • Money reform and the Eurozone crisis: panacea, utopia or grassroots
    • Authors: North; P.
      Pages: 1439 - 1453
      Abstract: The economic crisis that broke out in 2007–2008 and the ongoing crisis in the Eurozone has given a new urgency to discussions about alternatives to capitalism, and a new salience to proposals for monetary reform and for grassroots economic alternatives. Using Marx and Engel’s concept of Utopianism as an analytical tool to distinguish between what is the work of ‘cranks’, and what of ‘brave heretics’, the paper examines four monetary responses to the crisis: (1) Positive Money’s call for a state monopoly on money issuance; (2) the reintroduction of national currencies, in particular the drachma; (3) proposals for state-issued parallel currencies; and (4) grassroots or subaltern money networks of various types. The paper argues that the dominance of neoliberal ideology at a European Union level means that proposals for monetary reform at the international and national level are unlikely to be taken seriously by elites and consequently seem utopian in Marxian terms. There seems to be little political will to engage with the complexities of and potential opportunities of a more diverse monetary architecture within the Eurozone, and a perceived need to ‘discipline’ potentially ‘irresponsible’ governments like Greece’s SYRIZA, although ‘responsible’ actors in the north of the Eurozone get more leeway. The potential of grassroots alternatives is also too often overstated. While alternative currency networks developed as part of the Greek crisis are not particularly well developed, alternative currency networks could work as sites of innovation, normalising the idea that there are progressive alternatives to Eurozone breakup.
