The Mystery of the Money Supply Definition
Volume 3, No. 4 (Winter 2000)

A valid definition can be established by following the essentialist approach—that is, by focusing on the distinguishing characteristics of an entity. Contrary to mainstream thinking, we have shown that the money supply definitions remains intact, notwithstanding the deregulation of financial markets and the introduction of electronic means of payments.
