Example text

From a social justice perspective such resources should be shared, or at least their availability should be open to democratic consideration. As Chick points out, ‘money confers on those with authority to issue new money the power to pre-empt resources’ (1992:141). Much of this book will be concerned with the implications of this situation. Far from being a social resource, money is currently being mainly created and harnessed by the capitalist system. Bank Credit and Capitalism There is a clear connection between the privatisation of money creation and the emergence of capitalism.

In Galbraith’s well-recorded words, ‘the process by which banks create money is so simple that the mind is repelled. Where something so important is involved, what is money? 27 a deeper mystery seems only decent’ (1975:18–19). James Tobin has described bank money creation as ‘fountain pen money’ (1963:408). The implications of this capacity to create money through the banking system are largely unrecognised, because ‘although today the fact that commercial banks create much more money than the government is now explained in every introductory economics text, its full significance and effects on the economy have still not been sufficiently considered’ (Daly 1999:142 [author’s emphasis]).

This was particularly true of the dollar, where due to the purchase of oil in dollars, large amounts of dollars were held outside the USA. Eventually these ‘euro-dollars’ started to be circulated through the global banking system. Governments found they could not control their boundaries against the movement of currencies and had to abandon control on the movement of money. Credit restrictions were also lifted. In 1971, the Conservative government in Britain released credit controls in a ‘dash for growth’.
