    • ‘In the Walrasian perspective, prices adjust and productive capacity is used at the optimal level under the prevailing price conditions (optimising without a demand constraint).’
    • ‘Schumpeter explicitly credits the equilibrium-based Walrasian system as a scientific foundation for economics.’
