Does monetarism retain relevance?

They do not characterize themselves as creators of money, but instead emphasize their role in influencing financial intermediation.

They refer to the low level of interest rates to characterize monetary policy as stimulative despite low rates of growth of money and nominal gross domestic product. The question arises of whether monetarist ideas retain any relevance for central banks
