In this article we will be looking at how to go about establishing a Market. When Producers go about establishing a Market they trade commodities, trades, goods and services with each other. When the activity of trading products with each other starts to take place, two forces come into existence. These forces are created by the Producers. The Producers create a Supply Force and a Demand Force. The supply force is established when Producers place supply on the Market. The demand force is established when Producers make demands for their fellow Producers’ supplies. The interaction of these two forces establishes the value of all competing commodities, trades, goods and services on the Market. This is the process of establishing a Market.
These forces are called Market Forces. Market Forces are a naturally occurring activity. A Market occurs “only among producers” and in numbers greater than one person. It occurs when Producers exchange commodities, trades, goods and services with each other. Adam Smith called Market Forces the Invisible Hand.
For the most part, we use money as a medium of exchange. We use money to facilitate this exchange of commodities, trades, goods and services.
Anytime you have two or more Producers exchanging their produced commodities, trades, goods and services with each other you will find a Market. A Market is established any time, anywhere commodities, trades, goods and services are exchanged between two or more Producers.
Demand put forth by individuals for commodities, trades, goods and services, generates the Demand Force in the Market. In order for a Market to prosper all individuals involved in the market must balance their Demand Force with a Supply Force. The Market declines in value when supply and demand forces aren’t balanced.
When Producers make the demand on the Market for money, they bring along supply. The supply contains value. They place this supply on the Market and receive money. The money is equal in value to the value of the supply they themselves created. The Producer is maintaining balanced Supply and Demand Forces.
When Producers make the demand on the Market for commodities, trades, goods and services they bring money. The money is equal in value to the value of the products they are demanding. The Producer is maintaining balanced Supply and Demand forces.
Producer activity establishes and expands Markets. Markets gains value, energy, wealth, capital and power. Value, energy, wealth, capital and power are added to Markets. Markets grow and expand during this activity.
When non-producers and counter-producers make demands on Markets for money, they don’t bring along any or not enough supply. In some cases they bring along destructive supply. When they receive money without exchanging supplies for it, their Supply and Demand Forces are not balance.
When non-producers and counter-producers make demands on Markets for supply, they don’t bring along any or not enough money. When they receive supplies without exchanging money for them their Supply and Demand Forces are not balanced.
Non-producer and counter-producer activity harms Market. Markets lose value, energy, wealth, capital and power. Value, energy, wealth, capital and power are stolen by the non-producers and counter-producers. Markets decline during this activity.
Any time you find a declining and collapsing Market, you will find non-producers and counter-producers taking money out of the Market. They are taking money without a correct exchange for it in produced commodities, trades, goods and services.
Markets in their normal operation will have moderate to small value fluctuations up and down. In normal operations, Market value will have a gradual upward expansion trend over time. Non-producers and counter-producers cause extreme Market value fluctuations. The value fluctuations are in an extreme up and down like a roller coaster. This extreme roller coaster activity is caused by non-productive and counter-productive activities on Markets. When Producers participate in Markets, Markets graph out in an upward curve. When non-producers and counter-producers participate in Markets, Markets graph out in a downward curve.
Markets occur only among producers of commodities, trades, goods and services! Markets do not occur when non-producers and counter-producers, take money, value, energy, wealth, capital and power with no or not enough exchange in production for it. Money taken though out-exchange methods destroys Markets. Taking money, without an exchange for it pulls value, energy and power out of Markets. Money and products taken without an exchange for them destroys the Market Forces of Supply and Demand. This is theft or fraud. Theft and fraud destroy Markets.
Production exchange constructs and builds Markets. Production exchange is the action of establishing a Market. Production exchange establishes Market forces. These Market Forces are Supply and Demand.
