Understanding the nature and consequences of Economic Freedom

This work deals with the conceptual structure of economic freedom and its integration with economic democracy. It includes no ideological considerations or influence. It is based on the unicist approach to complexity science, which uses a pragmatic, structural and functionalist framework.

Economic Democracy EthicsThere are prejudices and fallacious myths installed in the world dealing with the concept of economic freedom. Unfortunately, no literature could be found that approached economic freedom based on its concept to define its nature (the “stem cell” of economic freedom). The existing approaches are strongly influenced by ideological positions.

This introduction, based on an excerpt from the book “The Future of Democracy and Capitalism” provides a conceptual approach to capitalism, going beyond the beliefs deposited on facts by people to understand the nature and dynamics that define the present and future of Capitalism.

It can be said that Greece was the origin of political democracy in the West but was not an economic democracy because in those times the expansion of cultures was driven by military actions.

It can also be said that the United States of America are a paradigmatic example of evolutionary democracy that integrates social democracy, economic democracy and political democracy to manage the domestic affairs.

As an evolutionary democracy, the United States of America could be taken as a paradigmatic example of Economic Freedom and Capitalism. But Economic Freedom and Capitalism cannot be imported or exported. The unique structure of values that are implicit in a culture’s archetype are the demonstration that it is meaningless to copy any model to a foreign culture that has different structural values.

The understanding of the nature of economic democracy and capitalism allow defining the particular way in which a country can deal with economics and economic democracy considering its own characteristics.

Economics: Business Modeling and the Future of Businesses

Business Models are developed to deal with the future of businesses. The future does not exist today, but it can be “built” making inferences based on the knowledge of the ontological structure of the unified field of the business.

Unified fields can be seen in different amplitudes within two dimensions:

1) An amplitude for the influential dimension
2) An amplitude for the temporal dimension

Unicist Hyperrealism provides a logical, reasonable, provable and understandable structure and the necessary business objects to develop the processes to transform the hyperreality that is implicit in any business model into results.

Hyperrealism requires apprehending the oneness of the unified field included in a business. The apprehension of the unified field requires true knowledge of the business.

The conceptual knowledge allows apprehending the possibilities of a business and the operational knowledge allows making it happen.

Invitation for Economists to Coordinate Research Groups

The conceptual economic approach allows integrating the cultural archetypes with the social, political and economic scenarios. We are promoting the establishment of Conceptual Economy Research Groups in the 51 countries in which we have researched the archetypes. The objective is to provide information on the economic possibilities for economic policy making.

What does Unicist Conceptual Economics Propose?

Unicist Conceptual Economics proposes defining what is possible to be achieved given the present circumstances, defining the actions that need to be done to improve the future circumstances and then finally use this definition of possibilities as an input for the systemic approaches to define the operational actions within the limits that have been established.

Unicist mathematics allows defining the possibilities of actions and the probabilities of their success to achieve pre-established goals.

Fundamentals of Country Scenarios

The Unicist Logic of Country Scenarios

It is not easy to apprehend the concept that the economic scenarios are the drivers of the new utopias of a culture. The active function fosters utopias, the energy conservation function is based on cultural myths and the concepts of social scenarios are taboos.

At a conceptual level, there are three integrated scenarios that drive the evolution of a country: the social scenario, the economic scenario and the political scenario.

There are different levels of concepts and fundamentals that drive the evolution of countries.

It has to be considered that these fundamentals are based on the dominant lifestyles (which are consistent with the archetype), work attitudes and technologies.

Lifestyles define the boundaries of social scenarios, work attitudes define the boundaries of economic evolution and the technological scenarios define the evolution of ideologies.

Below the fundamentals of social, economic and political scenarios and the lifestyles, work attitudes and technologies there is a cultural archetype that establishes the core values of a culture.

The cultural archetype establishes the taboos that need to be respected, the utopias that need to be fostered and the myths that need to be followed in order to be an accepted member of the society.

2012, the Year of the Possible

This year The Unicist Research Institute has celebrated the 35th anniversary with the most fruitful research effort in their history having finished more than 600 researches including some of them than demanded far more than 20 years (consciousness, unified field of human adaptive systems, etc). They made 600 new aspects in the field of individual, institutional and social fields become possible.

The unicist approach is based on finding out what is possible in order to focus on it. The unicist approach deals with the “possible”, defined as a noun. It has to be considered that a possibility is a conditional situation while the “possible” is an assertive fact.

What is possible sustains success. Everything that is possible can be achieved. But this has a problem: while it provides the security of what can be done, it demands the freedom of assuming the responsibility for doing it.

The crises in the world happen because something was not “possible” but this situation was disregarded. Failures are always a consequence of someone trying to do something impossible or of something possible that was not done because people did not assume the responsibility.

That is why The Unicist Research Institute promotes:

2012, the year of the “Possible”

Executive Committee

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute was the pioneer in complexity science research and became the major research organization in the world in the field of human adaptive systems. More than 4,200 unicist ontological researches were developed since 1976 until December 2011 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution. They included the development of the unicist ontogenetic maps (DNA) of institutions.


What is the Unicist Standard in Economics for?

The Unicist Standard in Economics presented by Peter Belohlavek produced a breakthrough to deal with the ontological structures of societies, technologies and the political system to define what is possible without making shortcuts.

It is based on the discovery of the structure of the ontology of Economics and the development of the ontological structure of Economic Schools and their functionality.

35th Anniversary of The Unicist Research Institute

June 1976 was the beginning of the research of evolution in the field of complexity science. It was focused on approaching the nature of reality which required an ontological approach to the basic research and an object driven approach in the field of application.

The research drove to the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, the unicist ontology, the unicist logic, the complexity science research methodology and the human ontointelligence.

This provided the basic knowledge to develop more than 3,500 applicative researches in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution that were finished until September 2010. The research work is still ongoing.

We would like to share with you this celebration giving you access to the book on:

Unicist Ethics: The Ethics of Doers

We consider it will allow you to expand your boundaries in work and businesses.

You can access the book at: http://www.unicist.org/deb_doers.php

This anniversary is a very special one, because it follows a turning point in our global expansion that took place during the last year.

Unicist Tweetinar: Unicist Ontology of Wealth and Poverty

The purpose of wealth is to foster evolution to guarantee the opportunities for the next generations. Wealth/Social evolution depends on the working capacity limited by the social and institutional inertia of a culture.

Operationally, wealth depends on the working capacity, the technology, the education and the inertia of a culture. Poverty as such doesn’t exist. Poverty implies the absence of Wealth.

That is why it is commonly seen in underdeveloped countries that there are organizations who promote the “combat of poverty”.

You can combat thieves because they exist, you can combat enemies, but you cannot combat poverty. What you need to increase is wealth. The combat of poverty is just a fallacious myth to justify the distribution of an existing wealth.

The production of wealth must be fostered to reduce poverty. Combating poverty produces more poverty.

Poor countries have no power, because their working capacity is extremely low, that is why they are poor.

The production of wealth implies ensuring subsistence as a minimum strategy. This subsistence level is what we call poverty.

This level implies following the inertia of a culture and ensuring that the education makes people follow the values of such culture while using the necessary technologies for subsistence.

The maximal strategy is given by the development of work, which implies changing the inertia extending the boundaries of the activity, using innovative technologies to produce more with less while fostering the individual responsibility in education.

Unicist Tweetinar on Ontologies for Scenario Building

Accurate future scenario building became possible after the ontological structure that sustains scenarios was discovered and became operational.

It allows building short and long term scenarios to define, among other aspects,  the limits of the environment to develop business activities.

We invite you to participate in a Unicist Tweetinar with Peter Belohlavek on May 17 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm (New York Time) that includes the Unicist Ontologies for Scenario Building. It will be developed at http://www.twitter.com/uniciststandard

Compulsive Hackers

Compulsive hackers are individuals who are driven by an addiction to hack institutions. They are Smart Alecks who cannot accept that institutional objectives have to prevail over personal goals.

Smart Alecks cannot add value. Maximal Strategies demand adding value to the environment to go beyond the existing boundaries of a business.

Smart Alecks are advantage takers that have an amoral behavior in order to profit from the environment.

This kind of behavior is the natural response of stagnant survivors when managing businesses.

Stagnant survivors are naturally “smarties” in order to live from the environment.

They are driven by anti-intelligence and anti-intuition having no ethical rules in their behavior.

They need to degrade the environment in order to justify their appropriation.

When they have a high IQ, they become extremely dangerous because their critics are very smart, fallacious and well disguised.
