Mystical Economics

„The world envisioned by Economics resembles the Garden of Eden, where everything came from God, the pre-primordial sin people having nothing else to do but wait for the natural rhythms, set by the invisible hand, which is moved by the will and the power of the Creator.”

The theoretical construct of Economics based on the assumption of self-regulation has, apart from a logical inconsistency coming from the depletion of the subject-object cognitive relationship, multiple epistemic inadequacies. Essentially, the latter ones derive from the belief that inter-subjectivity is not the explicit source of economic processes. The vision of Economics on its own object starts thus from the hypothesis that the origin of phenomena is extra-human, the link with the components of the human condition - labor, work, action - is over-determined, while the evolution of reality occurs by itself. By accepting this way of understanding, we find ourselves in the same undefined relationship like in the case of gravity: we can clearly see that it is an universal force, which is manifested objectively, we cannot oppose it, we do not know where it comes from or what causes it.
