Basics of banking system and how money is created

Several recipients of my Banking Digest have asked for some help to understand the basics of our banking system and how money is created. One of the main causes of the ongoing global financial crisis is fractional reserve banking (FRB) system so it’s really important to understand how it operates. My experience has been that that even people who work in Banks and the investment industry, do not have any idea how money is created.

In a speech last October, at The Economist’s Buttonwood Gathering in New York, the Governor of the Bank of England, Mervyn King said what he really thought, arguing that “of all the many ways of organising banking, the worst is the one we have today.” Possible remedies included not just breaking up banks, but also “eliminating fractional reserve banking”.

Here are some simple primers on FRB. Each adopts a different presentation style so at least one should convey the principles to you. The videos have been made on low budgets, without Bank sponsorship.
