Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't think so.

There are many great intellects out there: all they need is a new set of assumptions, and off they go.

I think that on the basis of an assumption - a Metaphysics of Value - that Value is definable only in relational terms, and an understanding that "Property" and "Money" are only relationships, not Objects, then it is possible to build an entirely new Economic theory from the ground up.

IMHO Such a theory would have a good chance of making better predictions because it is, as Wheeler put it, asking the right questions of Reality.
