    Abstract

    Quantity Theory is a foolproof theory. This Theory is based on Law of Conservation of Wealth. This Theory tests positive with Law of Mass Action of reversible economic (chemical) reactions. Study of utility ( I call utility as all that a human being needs) helps us understand Quantity Theory better. Utility and water have similarities. Water is a form of matter and utility is a form of wealth. Water is universal solvent and so is utility. All other forms of wealth dissolve in utility. Water is in the form of H + OH. Similarly utility exists in the form of Goods and services which are otherwise called as WANTS by economists + money and money related forms of wealth that are called as MEANS by economists. According to Law of Law of Conservation, value of wants = value of means. Any economic entity, be it an individual, a family, a society, a business firm, a state or a nation tries to attain equilibrium between wants and means. Quantity Theory is relevant to all branches of Economics.
