 The Macro Stability of Swiss WIR Bank Spending: Balance, Velocity and Leverage (April, 2012)

James Stodder, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Hartford, CT, USA;; (860) 548-7860

Bernard Lietaer, Center for Sustainable Resources, Univ. California Berkeley,

Abstract: Since 1934 the Swiss Wirtschaftsring (“Economic Circle”) or WIR Bank has issued its own reciprocal credits, not backed by Swiss Francs. Turnover in WIR+credits is shown to be highly counter-cyclical: firms are cash-short in a recession, and economize by greater use of WIR. A money in the production function (MIPF) model implies that this new spending arises mainly through increased credit Balances for larger firms, and increased credit Velocity for smaller ones. Panel data by industrial sector confirms this general pattern of WIR credits, a role similar to that of commercial trade credits, an important source of non+bank credit. The countercyclical multiplier on WIR expenditures will be highly leveraged.
