It is just debasement--there is overuse.

Folks who hope to explain everything with a few simple rules tend to omit a LOT if the situation is complex.  The desire for economics to find ONE economic motivation for human behavior is why Neo-Classical economics can be most accurately described as a lame theology.

The one-dimensionality and compartmentalisation of economic models is really depressing. It would seem that they come up with toy models that can be represented neatly on a two-dimensional graph for pedagogical purposes, and then they forget to progress to more realistic models. And that's being charitable.
