Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
deprecates this mental model

or depreci*a*tes it?

can one aprecate things? capital appreciates us as we accumulate it.

so deprecate money before it desecrates us...

sophisticated objectivism, eh? mature social  capitalism?


magisterially pithy comment, especially the phrase about the wolf pack.

Depricate - from Wiki:
In mainstream English, the infinitive "to deprecate" means, simply, "to strongly disapprove of (something)". It derives from the Latin verb deprecare, meaning "to ward off (a disaster) by prayer"

It is economic models with the sophistication of a wolf pack that we need to deprecate. But this usage is invidious to wolf packs, which actually exhibit long term survival capability in the environment in which they evolved and we cannot say that about 'mainstream economics.
