24 Alternative monetary economics Credit rationing and the liquidity preference of banks Creditworthiness Besides non-accommodation by the central bank to the demand for high-powered money, structuralists have also emphasized non-accommodation by banks to the demand for loans by firms. This is the issue of the liquidity preference of banks and that of credit rationing. Some post-Keynesian authors have depicted horizontalist banks as ‘passive’ (Dow, 1996, p. 497), or ‘mere ciphers’ (Cottrell, 1994, p.

As a consequence the velocity of money as defined by the authorities would be on the rise. (Lavoie, 1984a, p. 779) Thus many of the points later raised by structuralists were actually discussed in the earlier horizontalist works, although with less detail. However, the standard structuralist endogeneity claim (Pollin, 1991, p. 375) that financial innovation and liabilitity management mainly arise from central bank restraints on bank reserves becomes ever more dubious. Indeed, Mosler (2002, p. 420) says that such a claim ‘makes little sense .

But contrary to expectations, it does not. First, it should be pointed out that in the experiment conducted by Godley, the increase in inventories leads to a fall in the new steady-state level of income. The higher level of interest rates on loans and deposits, resulting from the higher loans, is thus associated with a lower level of income. The experiment generates a rising credit supply curve, but a downward-sloping LM curve! But a second, more damaging experiment can be conducted with Godley’s model (see Lavoie, 2001a).
