    As I understand it , in order for our economy to continue to grow and remain
    'healthy' banks must create more and more loans every year - as the main way
    new money enters the economy is via the banking system (I understand that the
    money base is then increased by Central bank so as to target the Fed funds rate
    etc.)
    This being the case, I was just wondering if businesses really do take out more
    and more loans every year (i suppose they must be doing so as the economy does
    grow). Also , as the cost of doing business declines due to technology etc.
    wouldn't businesses (both incumbents and start ups) now need to take out less
    loans than before in order to expand/grow ? If so, then would this not mean the
    economy would grow at a lower rate - because less new money is entering the
    economy via the banking system?
