1. This chapter's goals.
In this chapter we will try to show that the telematic cheque-invoice,
through the exact and continuous statistics it provides, can produce a
monetary market accounting of great scientific and political usefulness.
2. The telematic cheque-invoice as an automatic multicaptor
of the elemental phenomena of the market.
The market phenomena -exchanges- are very definite. But when they are
mediatized by a money system -and become therefore elemental monetary changes-
they obtain a new abstract-numeral dimension. In a rational money system,
this new dimension is felt automatically and exactly through what we have
called the telematic cheque invoice.
In fact the cheque invoice among other things is a metric document which
records an elemental mercantile operation with all its many pervalences;
we call it a multicaptor.
All the details obtained represent a rich qualitative and quantitative
material which can be the basis for the exact knowledge of the market.
3. The analytic-statistic market all-accounting.
The centralized automatic integration of all the information provided
by each and all the cheque-invoices emitted in every time-space under consideration,
produces «continuous and dynamic measurement, analysis and statistics
(always according to the treatment of this information's programme) of
the monetary market» which we will call mercantile all-accounting.
This all-accounting can have a high interest for all the population:
politicians, tradesmen, judges, professional men and citizens in general.
It is this sort of information -without personalized data- which must be
socialized, according to the principles explained in chapter
The accounting analysis and statistics programmes must be as complete
as possible. All the existing accounting techniques must be used; if as
a start this is not technologically possible, priorities can be established
to include little by little all the fields and ranges of the market.
Also the accounting period under consideration can be reduced little
by little according to the technological possibilities of the telematic
4. Levels of accounting centralization.
If effective results in the economic leadership of society must be obtained,
it is clear that the centralization of the telematic network must be extended
to the whole society under consideration in order to obtain the macro-mercantile
But this accounting centralization -which is abstract and, therefore,
does not mean a political or any other centralization- must be effected
in successive steps which might be the following:
every accounting enterprise, after transmitting to justice all the
information contained in the cheque-invoices signed by its clients,
will effect the statistics and analysis of the exclusive mercantile contents
of the invoices.
the accounting enterprises will send the partial results to centres of
a superior geographic area -towns, regions, etc.- which will integrate
them at their local level.
finally, the global centralization in the geo-political society will be
effected (see chart number 1).
5. Mercantile dynamics and structure of the all-accounting.
The job of organizing in detail the structure of the suggested all-accounting,
and the telematic programmes which must carry it out, must be done by experts.
However, the general principles can be sketched here, from the simple
observation of the market, since the formal analysis of it must necessarily
correspond to the processes and peculiarities of the phenomena which develop
every day in such a market.
In a first analytic approximation, trying to reflect the market in its
dynamic and continuous reality and complexity, we can consider the monetary
market -or exchange of goods through monetary conventions- as a reality
where the following elements converge:
merchandises (produced or producers), passive subjects of the exchange.
market agents, active subjects of the exchange.
goods exchanges, very definite phenomena, but mediatized by an abstract
convention which does not allow to apply to every merchandise a given mercantile
value (price or salary).
the money system, which is the abstract convention accepted by market
agents and used to make exchanges easier.
These elements are narrowly connected among them: none of them is self-standing,
but each of them exists in function of all the others and therefore their
distinction is simply analytical. But this analysis is absolutely necessary:
if we want to give a scientific interpretation of the market therefore
applying a system to increase effectiveness;
and if we want to produce rational norms of mercantile action to favour
and develop the market in each of its real elements and sectors.
Every different combination of goods and agents originates a kind of elemental
exchange. If we make a classification of the main sorts of exchange, we
will be able to distinguish in the market great cycles, very interesting
for the practical interpretation of the market:
1. Production cycle2.
1.1. Sub-cycle of «production and wholesale trade».
1.2. Sub-cycle of «production of inversion goods».
1.3. Sub-cycle of «retail trade and industry».
2. Consumers' cycle.
In the following annex there will be a more
definite explanation of all the elements and mercantile cycles, and of
the practical implications of separating them.
banks and savings banks.
must be kept in mind that the production of any modern enterprise is of
exclusively price-mercantile values.
