We can also find frequent examples of the opposite situation—the inflationary spiral in which the quantity of money outruns the supply of goods. When people want to buy more than has been produced, prices rise. Then some people lose out through being outbid in the marketplace. Those who suffer most are usually the ones who least deserve to be the losers—the frugal, the conservative, the prudent, together with the poor and unorganized who are unable to battle for the higher incomes they need to stay even with the rising prices.

Rising rates indicate that some people with too little cash are now willing to pay a higher price for the use of the other fellow’s money, whereas declining rates show that some people are holding more cash than they need and are now willing to take a lower price to put it to work. But this also means that the supply of money available for us to spend, lend, and borrow is a crucial factor in determining how much spending will actually take place. Since the objective of managing our national money supply is to keep spending more or less in line with the quantity of goods and services being produced, we must now turn our attention from the manner in which people use money to the process that results in the creation of the money that we actually use.

No one wants to assume the risk and inconvenience of having so much money around. In this connection we might take a look at the famous stories about people running around with wheelbarrows full of currency during hyperinflations, such as the terrible experience of the Germans after World War I. There, as in the Confederacy during the American Civil War and in France during the Revolution, the Government did print and spend tremendous amounts of money. In those cases, however, the use of checking accounts was either nonexistent or much less prevalent than it is today; currency and coin were the primary rather than the minor form in which money was handled.
