Cash Any Widely

Cash, any widely accepted form of money, usually in the form of legal tender coins and notes. In banking cash may also be considered as anything accepted by a joint-stock bank as perfectly 'liquid' or a ready alternative to coin and notes. Thus bankers' deposits at the Bank of England are considered cash because the Bank is always able to offer its notes in exchange for deposits. Cash in this sense is thus a debt or liability of the central bank. In the balance sheet of joint-stock banks, therefore, the two items 'Coin, notes, etc.' and 'Balance with the Bank of England' are considered as cash, and are customarily held at approximately 8 per cent of total deposits (the 'cash ratio').

Since then his writings have in turn been increasingly reinterpreted as a special case both by some followers and by some economists who had not wholly accepted his writings. The content of economics is in a state of change, and this site is therefore not a final statement of economic doctrine.

Economics is in the last resort a technique of thinking. The reader will therefore need to make an intellectual effort, more substantial for some web entries than for others, to get the most interest and value out of this website.
