A change in a country's can cause fluctuations in the between its currency and foreign currencies. Since the theory assumes that the demand for and supply of foreign currency are determined by the position of the balance of payments, it implies that supply and demand are determined mainly by factors that are independent of variations in the rate of exchange or the monetary policy.
This is because the slope reflects the positive relationship between output and interest rates. Thus, the demand-supply theory fails to explain the basic value incorporated in currencies. In addition to the balance in and financial markets, the model incorporates an analysis of the. The license-holder can import any good but amount if fixed by monetary authority.

As a result, for a given supply of money, the purchasing power of money will increase. For instance, with an increase in the production of goods the demand for money will follow suit. Hence, by means of empty dollars, Americans have diverted to themselves real resources from Japan. In 1987, the New York Stock Exchange dropped with more violence than in October 1929.
