Money and Credit – a €-pean Perspective

I have written a book (in German) on money and credit with a special focus on the euro zone. It was published by Metropolis in December 2014 and is available through the publisher, Amazon, and bookstores everywhere. There is a companion website in which I post comments about twice a month. You can download chapter 2’s section on money creation by commercial banks for free. Among other things, I discuss the mechanics of monetary policy, fiscal policy, money creation by commercial banks from a balance sheet perspective and apply these insights to the euro zone.
