In addition, the existence of a lender of last resort fosters credit expansion. In troubled times, a bank may always be able to get a loan from the central bank. This safety net makes banks extend more credits. As the potential for credit expansion grows, so does the potential for booms and malinvestments. Even with the introduction of central banks, governments did not have total power over money. While the banking system could produce fiduciary media, money production was still connected to and restricted by gold.

With the Bretton Woods System, central banks could redeem dollars into gold at the Federal Reserve. Private citizens were no longer able to redeem their money into gold, not even at the central bank. They were effectively robbed of their gold. The gold became property of the central bank. In such a gold exchange standard, only central banks and foreign governments can redeem currencies with other central banks. Under the Bretton Woods system, each currency stood in a fixed relationship to the dollar, and thereby to gold.

The first receivers of new money can buy at the old, still low prices. When the money enters the economy, prices are pushed up. Later receivers of the new money see prices increase before their incomes increase. There is redistribution in favor of the first receivers/producers of the new money to the detriment of the last receivers of the new money舒who become continually poorer. The first receivers of the new money are mainly the banking system, the government, and connected industries, while later receivers are that part of the population having less intimate contact with the government, for example, fixed income groups.
