CONCLUSION T HROUGHOUT this book the work done by the various market agencies has been considered with a view to bringing out the nature and importance of the economies they effect in faciliating the movement of capital in the
direction required by the social interest. This method of treatment has made it impracticable to separate that part of this work which deals with the supply of capital to parties who employ it to increase their current consumption from that part which is concerned with the supply of capital to those who employ it to maintain and increase the accumulated stock. By so doing, it has tended rather to obscure the position occupied by the market in the social machinery for production. If the market agencies are considered in that aspect of their work in which they are engaged in supplying capital for business purposes they are seen to form an organic part in the organization of society as producer.
