“Show me the money” – or how the institutional aspects of monetary policy implementation render money supply endogenous
The paper presents a historical account of the evolution of modern financial systems. It is argued that money supply had been exogenous for the most part of history, but the demise of gold standard and the development of central banking have rendered it endogenous. The analysis is supported by a review of the monetary policy implementation framework of the National Bank of Poland. Causality test results show that the degree of the banking system’s liquidity did not Granger-cause credit expansion in the decade 1998–2008.
