The one may be 10 000 miles away from the other and in a city, country or even continent that is different from the one in which the persons who were involved in the previous transaction were located, some days previously. This is where the central institution comes in, performing the essential and politically very delicate task of relating operations which have no direct link between them and which are scattered around the globe, whence the need for centralisation of information, which makes it possible to set in motion a series of operations which are very close in time but separated physically by thousands of miles.

There is no creation of any new payment money, only non-monetary intermediation. This form of intermediation has no effect on the seigniorage, which continues to accrue to the central bank. The bank notes handed in by savers at their banks are passed on to borrowers. The same note can be lent and re-lent several times and thus can act as the foundation for several credit distribution margins, whereas seigniorage is a onceand-for-all occurrence. The expression 'seigniorage' originated in the power enjoyed by an 20 A Stable External Currency for Europe Reserves Zero time 1st day (A) (A) 100 100 100 (B) 100 lOa lOa +100 -100 100(1) -lOa 16th day 30th day 40th day (C) (C) (A) + 100 Customers 6th day (A) C+l00 +100(1)100 Customers Reserves 5th day o lOa -100 +100(3) 5th and 6th days: transfer by (1) to (2)'s account at (8) 15th and 16th days: transfer by (2) to (3)'s account at (C) 100 -100 100(2) -100 50th day l00th day (D) lOa +100 100(3)100 +100(1) -100 -100 -lOa 1st day: credit of 100 by (A) to (1) (B) +100(2) +100 Zero time: Bank (A): situation 15th day (D) 100 -lOa +100(4) 100(4) -100 30th day: withdrawal of deposit by (3) 40th day: loan repaid to (A) by (1) 50th day: time deposit by (4) 100th day: withdrawal by (4) INTEREST RATE/DAY: on loans: Ic.

The reason for, and justification of, the non-payment of interest to the holders of bank notes (even supposing payment of interest to be a practical proposition) is that the essence of transaction money is that it should circulate. It consequently never stays in one place for very long before being re-used and moving on. This observation on the velocity of circulation is of fundamental importance if we are to grasp what follows, because the aim of the system of monetary organisation proposed here is precisely the use of the private ECU in transactions, with the resulting velocity of circulation (which present-day means of communication make possible).
