Part (I) and (II) of this paper reconstruct the quantity theory from structural axiomatic foundations. This yields a coherent view of the interrelations of quantity of money, transaction money, saving–dissaving, liquidity–illiquidity, rates of interest, leverage, allocation, prices, profits, unit of account, and employment. Part (II) focuses on the symmetric and asymmetric process of nominal and real saving–dissaving and on the monetization of nonfinancial assets. The distinction between liquidity preferences of individual households and the household sector as a whole proves to be crucial.
