Baldassarri ; Inflation and Growth in China ed. If the state of the balance of payments is such that movements of money would have to occur from one country to the other, independently of any altered estimation of money on the part of their respective inhabitants, then operations are induced which re-establish equilibrium. Mises explicitly recognizes that changes occurring on the "real" side of the economy, for example, a decline in the foreign demand for a nation's exports, may well have a disequilibrating impact on the balance of payments, even in the absence of a change in the underlying conditions of monetary supply and demand. Fourth, Arnon alleges that Thornton adhered to credit theories of money rather than vice versa, implying that he Thornton put bank credit loans and discounts above the stock of bank money notes and deposits as the crucial aggregate influencing economic activity.
