2 The money supply is not fully determined by the monetary authorities It is a widely held view that the money supply is endogenous in the sense that it is not fully in the control of the monetary authorities. In neoclassical economics this endogeneity may be limited, as in Tobin’s (1963) portfolio theory, to the size of the multiplier, or, as in global monetarism (Frenkel and Johnson, 1976), to the volume of reserves being determined by the balance of payments. Money supply endogeneity can nowadays even be adopted for operational convenience in modelling (Cottrell, 1994), just like money supply exogeneity was previously assumed for convenience in most macroeconomic models until recently, in the face of evidence to the contrary (Dow, 1997b).
