The 'classical' theory of money was extremely underdeveloped, but not in the sense that the functions of money were not recognized. That money is a means of payment, unit of account and store of value was as well recognized in the nineteenth century as it is now. However, as is easily seen, money plays no role in the construction of the stationary state, in theorizing general equilibrium and in analysing the deviations from these organizing concepts of 'classical' theory. Money simply acts as the neutral Keynes and 'Classical' Theory 33 medium through which exchange takes place.

Now, to obtain Say's Law, we make the heroic assumption that each notional supply and demand is not simply confined to the individual's head but makes its presence felt on the market concerned. Consequently, if a supply meets a demand and vice-versa, all is well and good.
