NOTE ISSUE. NOTES THE MOST IMPORTANT LIABILITY OF THE REICHS- BANK. Bank notes are the most important liabilities of the Reichsbank. Through these the Bank receives its special character, with these all other liabilities are connected, and by these the assets are determined. The right to issue notes is a privilege which has given rise to the exhaustive legal provisions regulating the Bank's business activity and to the participation of the Empire in the administration and in the division of the net proceeds. The fact that bank notes are obligations which fall due daily and have the same importance for the national economic system makes them closely related to transfer accounts (Giroguthaben).
