Preview

Money is essential in structural changes taking place through out‐of‐equilibrium processes. The restructuring of productive capacity, the backbone of these processes, implies distortions of the production process such that inputs are no longer consistent in time with outputs, costs with proceeds, and decisions with the resources available to finance them. In this context, money provides a bridge through time that makes it possible to re‐establish the consistency in time of processes and activities that would otherwise no longer be viable.
