This monograph is the result of research work carried out over a decade with the purpose of adopting a new approach to the theory of economic mechanisms. The study focuses on economies which are not in and do not tend to Walrasian equilibrium. Both formal mathematics and verbal argumentation have been used by the author to explain a more general theory of economic mechanisms.
