    Money creation in the modern economy
    By Michael McLeay, Amar Radia and Ryland Thomas of the Bank’s Monetary Analysis Directorate.
    Quarterly Bulletin
    2014 Q1

    • This article explains how the majority of money in the modern economy is created by commercial
    banks making loans.
    • Money creation in practice differs from some popular misconceptions — banks do not act simply
    as intermediaries, lending out deposits that savers place with them, and nor do they ‘multiply up’
    central bank money to create new loans and deposits.
    • The amount of money created in the economy ultimately depends on the monetary policy of the
    central bank. In normal times, this is carried out by setting interest rates. The central bank can
    also affect the amount of money directly through purchasing assets or ‘quantitative easing’.

    The Role of Testosterone in Social Interaction


    Neurobiological Underpinnings of the Estrogen-Mood Relationship


    Testosterone is not an exclusively male hormone. Estrogen is not an exclusively female hormone. In general, however, males have more testosterone and females have more estrogen.
    These are true and I’m not disagreeing with you about testosterone and estrogen. From a scientific standpoint, are you saying aggressive traits are masculine and irritability is a feminine trait? Because really, women can be aggresive and competitive too and there’s a plethora of studies that proved this.

    My point is that masculinity and femininity are social constructs that were culturally instilled in our psyche for the benefit of one gender in power. Take a closer look at societies with higher level of gender equality, these constructs are not enforced. If you* think we need these constructs for our society’s survival, you* are part of the problem.

    What I'm saying is, there's a grain of biological truth to some gender stereotypes. Doesn't mean men and women's personalities are predetermined or that men must have masculine personalities and women must have feminine personalities.

    Recent studies usually don't say testosterone = aggression. The one in my last post links testosterone and a drive for social status.
