The Existence of Monetary Profits within the Monetary Circuit

  • Louis-Philippe Rochon

Abstract

The many writings of Augusto Graziani have had a large influence on a generation of younger economists who have taken his writings to heart. In my own case, I have been seduced by many of his ideas on the monetary circuit including his perceptive analysis of initial and final finance. In this chapter, I would like to turn to a topic that has raised considerable debate and on which Professor Graziani had much to contribute.
