Indeed creditworthiness is a crucial explaining feature of the horizontalist depiction of credit-money endogeneity, and it ties in with the property and collateral requirements of Heinsohn and Steiger (2000). Structuralists represent credit rationing through rising credit supply curves (Dow, 1996). How do horizontalists represent credit rationing?
