Advances in Endogenous Money Analysis

Edited by Louis-Philippe Rochon and Sergio Rossi

The endogenous nature of money is a fact that has been recognized rather late in monetary economics. Today, it is explained most comprehensively by the theory of money in post-Keynesian monetary theory. The expert contributors to this enlightening book revisit long-standing debates on the endogeneity of money from the position of both horizontalists and structuralists, and prescribe new areas of research and debate for post-Keynesian scholars to explore.

Chapter 18: An essay on horizontalism, structuralism and historical time

Mark Setterfield


This chapter views the debate between horizontalism and structuralism through the lens of the ‘history versus equilibrium’ distinction in post-Keynesian macrodynamics. The argument is that that there can be, and to an extent already is, agreement that the horizontal credit-supply curve is not a special case, and that the existence of an indeterminate dynamic credit-supply schedule provides a general framework capable of accommodating both horizontalist and structuralist arguments. These claims rest on the distinction between logical and historical time and, in particular, the claim that any construct (including, for example, a credit-supply schedule) that is akin to a determinate long-run equilibrium relationship is anathema to the methodological foundations of post-Keynesian economics.
