Abstract

The paper offers theoretical discussion and modelling showing that -in accordance to the post Keynesian approach to endogenous money- the credit-worthy demand for loans determines the supply of loans at the prevailing interest rate, while -in accordance with Keynes's liquidity preference theory- the rate of interest is endogenously determined as to equalize the demand and supply of liquidity-money in terms of stocks. As a consequence, the markup reflected in the spread between the central bank refinancing interest rate and the market interest rate is endogenously determined by the total demand and supply of liquidity-money. The paper also argues that, while the central bank effectively controls the base interest rate, additional conditions are required to control the liquidity-money market interest rate, owing to the conventional nature of the rate of interest Keynes pointed out.
