The opposite strand, spurred by the realisation that the quantity theory of money did not satisfactorily explain the English monetary phenomena of the first half of nineteenth century, did much to restore to monetary theory the full complexity of money's functions. In this respect the anti-quantity theory tradition rediscovered the partial validity of mercantilist monetary arguments. Nevertheless even this strand of the classical school remained firmly wedded to the naturalistic view of money as a harmonious element of capitalist exchange.
Currency school authors similarly to Thornton but unlike Ricardo, also recognised that 'real' balance of trade deficits could occur (Overstone, 1840b, p. 167; Norman, 1833, sec. li), but the thrust of their analysis was to seek monetary causes for capitalist crises. The currency principle has a clear implication: the circulation of credit money should be made to fluctuate exactly as a purely metallic circulation would have done (Torrens, 1857, ch. 2). Harmony can then be established between credit money and commodities in exchange, but in achieving it the fluctuations of the gold reserve of the Bank of England play a critically important role.
Harmony can then be established between credit money and commodities in exchange, but in achieving it the fluctuations of the gold reserve of the Bank of England play a critically important role. When the Bank's gold reserve rises it follows that an influx of gold is in process, hence the domestic quantity of money is too small; when the Bank's reserve declines it follovvs that the domestic quantity of money is too large. A properly managed Bank of England, therefore, ought to be increasing (decreasing) the quantity of its outstanding banknotes as its gold reserve is increasing (decreasing).
