High-powered money is money that is valid for the settlement of taxes and central bank clearing. Unlike low-powered money, which is valid for the settlement of private debts.

High-powered money is created ex nihilo when the sovereign spends, and destroyed when the sovereign taxes.

Various sorts of low-powered money is created by various sorts of private lending.
