Summary This collection of essays in the tradition of monetary circuit theory, also known as monetary theory of production, elaborates on the foundations of modern monetary macroeconomics. It contributes to a new approach to monetary analysis, which provides original insights into the complex fields of money, banking, and finance. The contributors, all prominent experts in these fields, explain a number of economic activities, such as production, consumption, investment, and fixed capital accumulation, in terms of monetary circuits, providing a deeper understanding of the working of contemporary economic systems. This book offers an original analysis of the fundamental factors that led to the current global economic and financial crisis. It will be of great interest to students, postgraduates and scholars in monetary economics, as well as to practitioners and decision makers involved in monetary, banking and financial policies
