Formatted abstract Recently, a debate has resurfaced in economic literature on whether and how credit markets affect aggregate economic activity. Specifically, the debate has centred on the transmission mechanism of monetary policy. That is, by what channels do monetary policy affect real economic activity. This paper reviews the literature surrounding the role of financial intermediaries in the macroeconomy. The paper examines what some economists call the New Credit View. The arguments and evidence relating to this literature are reviewed and some evidence presented in an attempt to identify the existence of a credit channel using Australian data. Although the evidence presented is consistent with that of a credit channel, no firm conclusions can be drawn without further research.
