The classical economists were concerned with the economic categories of consumption, production, and description of the classical Say ’ s Law is that it states that production and consumption are identical.

From the perspective either of underconsumption or oversaving, one category is perceived as a limit of the other. taxation as an instrument of sav. ings would be ineffective since it would produce adverse effects on voluntary saving. This is because in underdeveloped countries volun­ tary saving is at present very low.
