Hence, as in Ricardo, the attention focused on produced and reproducible commodities. The producer is said to put up with the productive effort only on the assumption that he receives ‘an equivalent’ for it. 1 Value, its component parts, and utility Value (or price), Say contended, was governed by ‘demand’ and ‘supply’. He gave these concepts the following analytical meanings. As regards the former, the reference is to ‘aggregate demand’ for a commodity and it is argued that it depends negatively on the commodity’s price.
II: 69–70)(13 ) This criticism anticipated an objection levelled by Samuel Bailey at Ricardo’s concept. 3 Gross and net revenue Smith was accused of having put forward statements in his discussion of the component parts of value which can be read as confounding gross and net produce. This kind of criticism can certainly be levelled at Say, who stressed vis-à-vis the doctrine of the Physiocrats: Whence it appears, that the term net product applies only to the individual revenue of each separate producer or [entrepreneur]23 in industry; but that the aggregate of individual revenue, the total revenue of the community, is equal to the gross produce of its land, capital, and industry.

Which entirely subverts the system of the economists of the last century, who considered nothing but the net produce of the land as forming revenue, and therefore concluded that this net produce was all that the community had to consume, instead of admitting the obvious inference, that the whole of what has been created, may also be consumed by mankind.
