The Austrian business cycle occurs when unbacked money (fiduciary media) is injected into the credit market, artificially lowering the rate of interest.

So, if you are saying, “Suppose that the stock of money–including bank deposits–is held constant,” then I agree you couldn’t have an Austrian business cycle.
