    This theory wasn’t as good as the neo-mercantilism theory of international trade and finance.
    The theory only favored countries with industrial powers that had the capability to produce more of manufactured goods and export to less advantaged countries that had gold.
    It should too be noted that not all countries had gold,done had diamond, silver and other metals…
    Most of the less developed countries by then had low machinery and technical power to extract those minerals.
    Thank God it is no longer in existence.
