A FRAMEWORK FOR ECONOMIC ANALYSIS
An Invitational Conference
Bretton Woods, New Hampshire
June 12-15, 1996
The purpose of this conference is to bring together a selected
group of portfolio managers, analysts, researchers
traders, and academics who have a common understanding
of monetary operations.
The objective of this conference is to achieve agreement on the use
of a common conceptual framework for undertaking
contemporary macroeconomic analysis.
Portfolio managers in attendance are responsible for well over
$50 billion in assets. The economists and analysts from the
international dealer community represent some of the world?s
largest and most sophisticated fixed income trading and sales
We believe that this group has the potential to establish an international
standard for the presentation and analysis of economic data.
Several of the fundamentals are Post Keynesian…
Deposit money is endogenous
Central Banks set short term rates exogenously
Deposits exist solely as the result of loans
Extension of these fundamentals includes…
Internal sovereign debt functions as interest
Taxes create a demand for the goverment’s
Fiat currency is defined exogenously
