after writing down my thinking, I am now having some second thoughts about some portions. I will leave it and sleep on it

So let's take time to think about it. In particular

- do not confuse national income accounting conventions with "behavior": VA is the effect of "demand" (of factors) as much as C+I is "supply" (of goods) ... and they are always equal because of the individual budget constraints.

- when demand for a good goes down respect to expectations this may be due to MANY things: wrong expectations, wealth shock, a shock to productivity, a change in tastes, a change in relative prices ... and so on.
