The Spontaneous Order

„The problem is that the dynamic that defines capitalism, that of unforgiving market competition, clashes with the human desire for stability and certainty.”
Alan Greenspan

Economic visions are still torn by the partisanships of the two classical orders: the natural one and the constructed one; the order of the inherited tradition and the projected order. The political right and left (deriving from this dichoto-mist way of looking at things) have confiscated the manner of understanding and realizing the economy.

It is still vague the way out from the irreducible takes on the means used and the pursued goals. Against the evi¬dence that another order is the functional one - the sponta¬neous order - Economics' path into policies is through leftist of rightist ideological channels. Even when exceptions occur, re-centering the economy on the guidelines of order through pluralism (or spontaneous order) is perverted by the rules of the natural or the artificial orders. The recent case of the US economy (marked by the concepts of the neoconservatives) or the case of the Chinese economy, both tempted to believe in the spontaneous order, reveal the conditioned reflex of the visions of the natural and artificial order respectively.
