The Eurodollar Market and the Money Supply

The present article analyses the role of the Eurodollar market from the standpoint of money supply theory. First, a suitably extended money supply model is set up as a basis and then a relatively general portfolio model. The analysis shows that fundamentally the Eurodollar market is of an expansive nature. At the same time, it becomes clear what economic interrelationships play a decisive role in that expansive effect. With regard to monetary policy, the analysis makes it clear that for all the expansive nature of the Eurodollar market the central banks have lost control over the money supply and that minimum reserve requirements for Eurodollar deposits would not necessarily eliminate the expansive character of the Eurodollar market.
