Money - money supply - central banks.

Central bank money comprises the two forms of money over which the central bank has exclusive rights and the greatest degree of control:

  • Physical bank notes and coins.
  • Reserves in financial institutions' current accounts with the central bank.

Central bank money is also referred to as narrow money, the monetary base or M0, as it is the smallest established measure of the money supply.
