Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Great to see a less anthropomorphic economics being postulated.  Not only is Political Economy often denuded of its politics, and presented as an apolitical objective reality, but even Political Economics is centred on humanity and society and its needs without a care for its impact on the surrounding ecosystem and the exhaustion of non renewable resources and dumping grounds.  

So much conventional economics is still about gaining competitive advantage for parts of the economic world order at the expense of other parts, the ultimate zero sum game, and so little is devoted to improving sustainable capacity (or reducing unsustainable footprints) overall.  I think we probably need a new Einstein to bring economics to an entirely new level - one that explains current phenomena, but can also make a decent shot of predicting the shape of things to come.
