The Rabbit in the hat – bank accounting and money creation, wants to be a book that puts order in the topic, perhaps the first exclusively dedicated to the subject, at least in Italian. However, it is the first text to have a comprehensive analysis of all aspects of the creation of bank money, from accounting to legal ones, and the individual movements of money on the bank balance sheet in order to reconstruct, accurately, each accounting entry that allows banks not only to create their own means of payment to be used in the economy, but also to keep it in order to take advantage of monopoly situations.
The rabbit in the hat, in the title, wants precisely describe a sort of magician's trick, with which the banking system is able to produce an asset out of nothing without any business cycle. The money creation process is described in the preliminary analysis, in all the elements, from the contiguity between legal and bank money, to the accounting standards, reported and commented in a long chapter, passing by the inter-bank payments and clearing houses, where the trick of the magician acts before to put back the bank money in the balance sheet without destroying it. Attention is also given to "off balance sheet operations", a place outside the rules, where transit some monetary volumes largest of those shown in the financial statements, and to the reserves in liabilities, where the banks' owners can collect their shares.
A book that wants to be analytical but also help with the solution proposed by the various monetary reform movements.
