We can thus conclude, as Sawyer (2001, p. 497) suggests, that no conclusion can be drawn regarding the ‘co-movements of interest rates and loans (or the stock of money) over the cycle’. It follows, once more, that the least misguiding assumption is to suppose that the credit supply curve is horizontal. Strong exogeneity of interest rates and financial innovation Godley’s (1999) model allows us to deal with a few more issues. 10 In that sense, from the point of view of central bank accommodation, one could say that the model is fully in the horizontalist tradition.

169–73 and ch. 8). Horizontalists such as Moore and Kaldor did emphasize the elasticity of the supply of credit by banks and their accommodating behaviour (non-discretionary), through overdraft arrangements for instance, rather than the credit-rationing aspects. But this is to be expected since these authors were initially trying to convince their readers that money was endogenous. However, both Kaldor (1981, p. 15) and Moore (1988, pp. 24 and 57) did underline the possibility of credit rationing and the importance of finding creditworthy borrowers, as did other horizontalist advocates, such as Godley and Cripps, who point out that ‘changes in the stock of loans and money are governed solely by the demand for loans and the creditworthiness of would-be-borrowers’ (1983, p.

Indeed, Mosler (2002, p. 420) says that such a claim ‘makes little sense . . since bankers will always do their utmost to minimize their reserve requirements’. In a world with zeroreserve requirements, hence without reserve restraints, we shall still observe both liability management and financial innovation. These are features of any banking system, even when the central bank is pegging interest rates. 28 Alternative monetary economics The impossibility of an excess supply of money Kaldor and Trevithick’s (1981) and Moore’s (1988) intuition – that there can never be an excess supply of money, a claim often associated with the reflux principle – has often been questioned from various quarters, but this claim is vindicated by Godley’s model and method.
