Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, actually I think before anyone can write anything meningful about Economics they must have a good look at their assumptions.

As has been discussed on ET ad nauseam, all too often these assumptions bear no relation to the reality of the world in which we live.


Why do I suspect that if you were to write such a work you would find yourself practicing economics from Finnigan's Cave?

Me, I'm from the "Zen and the Art of Economics" school.

In particular the

Metaphysics of Value

with which I commenced that rather rambling paper on Knowledge and Value.

I'm summoning up a book which will have a section, probably on "Coarse Economics" (as with "Coarse Fishing")

In fact the book's probably already written out there and I could probably assemble it from the stuff I've posted on ET and elsewhere.

Not easy for an idle bastard like me.
