Anderson extra holds that no matter what actual propositions the volume thought bargains can to boot be deduced from an accurate conception of worth and that many actual theories of recent economics (such because the legislation of call for and provide, the idea of capitalization, and Gresham’s legislation) are inconsistent with it.

Although a few actual propositions could be had from the amount idea, now not each end derived from it really is precise. Anderson expended a lot attempt to illustrate that many theories developed upon it are fake.

For instance, he argued that the independence among the inventory of cash and the amount of products, assumed for the aim of achieving the realization that raises within the inventory of cash result in proportional raises within the expense point, if carried into macroeconomics has pernicious results.
