For the theory to be 35 refuted, all models of the family must fail. This algorithm requires that the number of models be finite; that is, it requires that the theory can generate only a limited number of possible auxiliary assumptions. If all models fail, the theory fails, and a new theory is needed. The number of models of a theory must be finite if the theory is going to be falsifiable. How to justify it? The criteria utilized to construct models refer to the use of auxiliary assumptions. But what these assumptions are about?

This equilibrium is (trivially) stable. Therefore, the method of comparative statics can be applied to derive beta propositions, that is, to determine the effect of exogenous variables upon endogenous variables. An increase of the nominal price of good B would have the following effects. Real wages would fall and the quantity demanded of good B would also fall. At this lower level of real income, the required level of real cash balances would fall. But the rise in the price would lead precisely to a fall in the initial real cash balances.

Then the new and old stock would tend to equalize. Of course, if the relation between real income and real cash balances were proportional, these values would indeed equalize; but the relation is not proportional, as workers would end up with a deficit of real cash balances. They would have to increase the stock of money, which implies buying a smaller quantity of good B in the period of adjustment. There would be a real-cash balance effect on the demand for good B. Once this adjustment is made, the new equilibrium implies lower real income and consumption of good B, together with a lower amount of real cash balance, period after period.
