Moneta, credito e produzione


  • Sergio Rossi

    () (Department of Economics, Université de Fribourg)


Questo lavoro esamina la distinzione analitica che esiste tra la moneta e i depositi bancari, con particolare riferimento al funzionamento di una moderna economia monetaria di produzione. In generale, i teorici del circuito monetario considerano la moneta in quanto mezzo di pagamento, mentre gli autori postkeynesiani considerano la moneta quale riserva di valore. Questo lavoro mostra l’importanza di sviluppare una teoria monetaria della produzione in cui la moneta è sia un mezzo di pagamento sia una riserva di valore. In esso si afferma che la moneta bancaria è un flusso mentre i depositi bancari sono degli stock di potere d’acquisto. Focalizzando l’attenzione sulla natura contabile della moneta bancaria, questo lavoro spiega la doppia funzione (monetaria e creditizia) del sistema bancario, e mette così in evidenza le caratteristiche distintive delle banche rispetto alle altre istituzioni finanziarie.
