Theoretical and Applied Economics
No. 6 / 2012 (571)

Still the Opposite!

„Reality's monochord constitution cannot be avoided due to the fact that Wealth is, in practice, the substitute of Power. Property is Power. Wealth is a problem of yield, while Power is a problem of property. The extended association goes in the same direction: the property is an individual's problem, while Liberty can only find its solution in yield.”

The epistemic founding of Economics falls into misstep, on an ideatic path, with its object of study. There are two values which structure the theory responsible for this methodological fracture: yield and individualism. The extra-economical origin of the idea-generating sources has been fixed by The Enlightenment in mechanical physics, for yield, and in political philosophy for individualism. The path of knowledge in Economics was to be trodden by industrialism, seen as a technological system for the transformation of energy into mechanical work with a utilitarian destination, and for the creation of national states as machineries meant to administer the individual rights and freedoms.
