In developed economies, new money is created by private banks when they issue new loans. This research uses time series data on bank credit and capital assets of a panel of developed economies to examine how new money issued by banks affects the allocation of capital in the economy. This seminar will also present how future research will investigate the economic implications of this allocation, and the tools available to policymakers to influence the outcomes of the money creation process for better economic outcomes.
