In this 129-page brochure the German Central Bank informs about the basics of money and the monetary system. The brochure itself is only available in german thus a very short summary and a few translations of the most important quotes will be provided here.

The interested reader should particularly focus on the chapters of the Volume of Money (3.4) and the Generation of Money (3.5). Several people still consider it as a conspiracy theory when they are told that not only the central bank but also commercial banks can create money "from thin air" just by issuing new loans. Also the belief that banks are lending the money of depositors to debtors should be finally recognized as a myth after reading chapter 3.5

Two short quotes on this from chapter 3.5 :

"The central bank as well as commercial banks can create money. Bank deposits are created primarily through issuing loans" (Page 75 bottom)

"When a commerical bank issues a loan, it finances the loan by creating the corresponding amount of bank deposits" (Page 71 bottom)

For the english only readers, a translation of the most important passages of chapter 3.5 is added here :

How cash enters into circulation

If a private person needs cash, he typically gets this money at the bank counter. But how do the commercial banks get the cash ? In the Euro zone only central banks may issue cash. If a commercial bank needs cash it asks for a loan from the central bank, the central bank checks the financial standing of the commercial bank and then puts the requested amount of money in the account of this bank at the central bank. (...) The technical term for this kind of money is central bank money.

The commercial bank can request to withdraw the central bank money they have in their account in form of cash (...) If commercial banks have more cash than they require they can deposit this money in their account at the central bank. (...) If a commercial bank uses this money to repay the loan they received from the central bank, then the central bank money is "destroyed" - the money as well as the loan are then cancelled from the books.

Another way to create central bank money for a bank is when the commercial bank sells an asset to the central bank (e.g. gold, foreign currency, stocks and bonds). In this transaction the central banks creates new central bank money and puts it in the account of the commercial bank. From a historic perspective thats how the gold and foreign currency reserves of the central bank came into being. (...)


How bank deposits at the commercial banks enter circulation

In the economy large parts of financial payments are not exchanged in cash but by transfering sight deposits from one account to another account. For example sight deposits are transfered from the account of the employer to the account of the employee and from there e.g. to the account of the landlord. But how were these bank deposits created ?

The process is equal to the creation of central bank money : The commercial bank issues a loan to a customer and then puts the equivalent amount of money in his account. In this process new money was created. The creation of deposit money is an accounting process. (...)


Minimum reserves

How can the Euro system ensure that the commercial banks do not create excessive amounts of deposit money and thus endanger price stability ? An important instrument are the minimum reserves. The Euro system can pledge commercial banks to have minimum reserves. These minimum reserves are calculated for each commercial bank from the amount of sight deposits, core deposits and savings, which non-banks have on their accounts. Currently the minimum reserve is set to 2 percent (...) The minimum reserve has to be held in form of central bank money.
