The empirical analysis carried out supports several propositions of the endogenous money approach. This book celebrates and explores Basil Moore's interests in and contributions to monetary and macroeconomic theory. More recently, he has embraced complexity theory as part of an ongoing effort to understand macroeconomics as an evolving, path-dependent process.
