The Monetary Transmission Mechanism
AbstractSeveral articles have recently questioned the "money view" of the monetary transmission mechanism and have offered an alternative "credit view". We argue that the money view has been incompletely presented in much of the literature and in almost all textbooks on Macroeconomics and Money and Banking. A distinction between the two views is unnecessary if one presents the money view correctly. A change in the money supply can affect income both directly and indirectly through what we call the "cash balance effect", which has other aspects than the wealth aspect that Patinkin emphasizes in discussing his "real-balance effect."
