In view of these results, it is easier to understand why some American post-Keynesians are reluctant to recognize that reserves are fully endogenous and that interest rates are set exogenously by central banks. In the USA, as in Europe, the central bank does not appear to have full control over the shortest of the rates – the overnight rate. Interest rates under the control of the central bank do not appear to be truly exogenous. Their levels seem to depend on the interaction between the demand for and the supply of reserves.

Disingenuous and misleading to declare that the funds rate is now “marketdetermined”. ’ However, there may be circumstances where central bankers, lacking strong views regarding the direction monetary policy should take, will change the target interest rate in the way expected by market opinion (Wray, 2004b). Notwithstanding the above, the Fed instructs the Desk to achieve its target rate. Thus the Fed is pursuing essentially defensive operations, just like the Bank of Canada. The difference is that the Fed does not have perfect information about the drains on reserves that must be compensated for, nor does it have perfect information about the daily or even hourly demand for free reserves or for discount window borrowing; as a result, the Fed cannot perfectly equate supply to demand at the target funds rate (or at the actual rate).
