Graziani states that teaching is not and cannot be a neutral science. Teaching and research result from the ideological and conceptual approach of the lecturer, from their social sensitiveness, from their ability to deal effectively with the issues which they consider "topical, current, relevant". This is not a mere theoretical enunciation, but a rule which Graziani follows and applies to a number of different issues, such as the role of welfare distributionin economic science, the problems in the measurement of real income, the effects of changes in taxes on the aggregate demand. In this latter regard, it can be shown that Graziani’s approach leads to the conclusion that certain operations, such as the tax cut of 80 Euros funded by reductions in public spending, cannot produce an increase, but a reduction in the aggregate demand.
