Economic development


National interest is the ultimate purpose of globalization

According to the unicist logical approach to globalization, this is not an economic phenomenon but a comprehensive phenomenon, which encompasses economic aspects as drivers to action. It is based on a diplomatic power upheld by the organization of the State, which grants an advantage to countries with mature political systems.

Sustainable GlobalizationGlobalization has cultural aspects that constitute a basis through the myths of those nations which are globalizing, and which materializes in the power of each culture’s language.

On the other hand, it promotes the development of peoples through the compatibility of shared interests and through the search for an ideology that allows integrating the development needs.

Finally, globalization seeks to facilitate the integration of individual interests. These individual interests basically foster economic integration and represent a starting point for a sustainable globalization.

Sustainable Globalization

Sustainable globalizations are those that have a cooperation structure that carries a national interest as its ultimate purpose; they present global development as an objective and count on a strong diplomacy to prevent conflicts from developing into wars.

Their underlying condition of integration is given by their members’ shared competitiveness, and a social capital among institutions that make them functional to the accomplishment of the community’s objectives.

In these cases a strong feeling of cooperation prevails, which ensures that such competitiveness be functional to the integration of institutions among its members.

Unstable Globalization

Economic globalizations are those that seek a region’s development through the existence of a shared interest, and which are mounted on a dominant ideology as a basis of an economic globalization. They include diplomacy to obtain benefits.

They are based on the need to ally in light of a common enemy or by imposition of one of its members as a result of military, economic or religious dominance.

Unstable globalizations have lasted centuries, but since the structural modification of communications and the speed of technological evolution, they tend to disappear in much less time.

Conclusion

In order for a globalization to be sustainable it requires that the national interest be covered. There has to be a strong State permitting a powerful diplomacy and there must also be, within the vital space within which the culture operates, a globalization concept that permits to include other cultures.

Global Strategies: Unicist profiling of Countries

A unicist profile describes the essential aspects of an individual, institution or culture at an operational level. A unicist profile defines the role of the entity, its materialistic profile and its ideological profile.

To define the structure of a  profile it is necessary to apprehend the objective, subjective and essential aspects of a reality, but to manage profiles it is only required to be able to build an empathic relationship with the individual, institution or culture.

A unicist profile materializes the meaning of the existence of these entities. In the case of cultures it becomes necessary to accept the fact that their profiles underlie the actions of their members and are inserted in the dominant myths of the culture.

This structures the social norms that have to be accepted in order to be acceptable as a member of a culture.

The cultural archetype is the complement of the role of cultures which provides the structure that sustains their cultural positioning.

Nature is organized by objects, and so are cultures. Social objects are the institutions of a country that provide the framework that sustains social and individual behavior.

Understanding the unicist profile of a country is essential to be able to understand the functionality of its institutions.

When dealing with cross-cultural activities it is necessary to have apprehended the profiles of the different cultures involved in order to avoid colliding with their nature.

Utopias Sustain and Foster the Economic Behavior of Cultures

Behind any economic action there is a utopia that sustains it. This implies that the drivers of utopias are the materialistic needs of a culture or an individual.

Unicist Ontogenetic Map of UtopiasThis research triggered the extreme criticism from some segments of “intellectuals” or “spiritualists” who consider that the utopias come from the world of the ideas or from the spirit.

This research demonstrated that they are built as ideas but triggered by materialistic scarcities.

That is why those countries where economic freedom is fostered evolve faster because new utopias are permanently triggered by the participants of the economic activity.

The Unicist Ontological Structure of Utopias

Utopias can be seen from two different standpoints:

  1.  The dysfunctional
  2.  The functional

From the dysfunctional standpoint utopias are a sort of “fantasies”. From a functional standpoint they foster the evolution of cultures.

Utopias’ purpose is to upgrade cultures opening the possibilities of actions and providing a catharsis to sustain evolution.

A social utopia is functional to the next level of evolution. The upgrade of a culture happens because a utopia is installed to overcome the implicit weaknesses of a specific situation of a culture.

This opens new possibilities of action, establishing at the same time a cathartic context that allows failing before achieving the upgrade of the culture.

From an operational essential standpoint, utopias open possibilities, allowing cathartic “explosions”, introduce motivation for action and establish shared goals for the future.

This integration has functional and dysfunctional aspects. But illusory goals should be considered together with possible goals in their oneness.

From a strict standpoint, a maximal strategy that depends on the external environment of the society is somehow an illusory goal to be achieved.

In the field of utopias, illusions, actions, doing and communicating are nor separated concepts but one to achieve the final goal that is upgrading a society.

Operationally, four segments of utopias can be described:

Illusory utopias

Illusory utopias are those that basically provide catharsis to the members of a society. Involving cultures are driven by illusory utopias based on heroic projects that will “change the history” (typical title for illusory utopias).

Illusory utopias become functional when they are part of challenging and possible projects, providing the extreme possibilities to go beyond the boundaries of a situation.

Hypothetic utopias

They are the rational utopias that are built upon theoretical possibilities developing projects that should be achievable. Hypothetic utopias provide a framework of truths to sustain their ideas. They are necessary to widen the boundaries of the possibilities and sustain the need of freedom of dependant societies.

Hypothetic utopias allow people to think that they will be able to change a situation anytime based on their rationalized social intentions.

Possible utopias

Possible utopias are those that allow building synergy in societies. This synergy is based on a shared project that can be done with the integration of the members of a culture.

Possible utopias imply prices to be paid and the exclusion of the aliens. Aliens are those who do not share the vision of the possibility.

These utopias are basic for growth and provide the necessary cultural context to sustain the culture without changing it. Thus they are natural to evolving leading cultures.

Challenging utopias

Challenging utopias foster cultural change. They are based on action and on expanding the boundaries of a culture.

They necessarily include illusory and hypothetical aspects in order to expand the possibilities of what can be done. Challenging utopias are driven by the heroes of cultures.

Evolving cultures and emerging cultures are driven by these challenging utopias developed by heroes.

Those cultures that have not solved their identity in their environment cannot accept authoritative roles and cannot “use” heroes to evolve. They fear the power of heroes and therefore they naturally transform challenging utopias into illusory utopias.

Conceptual Economy is a Macro-Micro Approach

This is a synthesis of the works on conceptual economy developed by Peter Belohlavek to provide a guiding idea of how to deal with real economy considered as a complex adaptive system. It is part of the conceptual model for country scenario building and forecasting.

Conceptual EconomyThe development of the conceptual approach to country scenarios, which included conceptual economy, started in the ’70s and its core aspects were finished in the ’90s.

It was triggered by the need to find a structural solution to the multiple failures in applying economic solutions to different countries. The objective was to find the concepts that allow adapting the systemic economy to the true drivers of economics considered as a complex system managing its unified field.

A) What changed?

  1. The expansion of countries is not based on military occupation anymore. The military became a dissuasion power.
  2. Democracy became the next utopia in the world, which established the basis for the era of participation.
  3. The existence of several expansive poles and the creation of the European Union.
  4. The transformation of economy into the driver for local and international expansion.
  5. The role of banks in the administration of monetary circulation.
  6. The influence of International Institutions to prevent or palliate local economic/financial crises.

B) What remained unchanged?

  1. The fact that the USA is the leading economy in the world.

C) What made conceptual economy possible?

  1. The discovery of the logic that underlies nature.
  2. The discovery that individuals’ actions are driven by the concepts they have which are cross-cultural and timeless.
  3. The unicist anthropological modeling of collective unconsciousness and the consequent country (cultural) archetypes.
  4. The discovery that the archetype of a culture and the concept of work it has, establish the context of the unified field in which economic behavior becomes possible.
  5. The discovery of ethical intelligence as the deepest driver of individual and social behavior and its consequences in economics.
  6. The discovery of thee concepts and fundamentals that drive economic behavior.
  7. The discovery that the concepts of macro and micro economic behavior are homologous.
  8. The discovery of the unified field of economics.
  9. The development of a logical solution that allowed transforming a conceptual approach to the complexity of economics into a systemic approach to deal with variables and cause-effect relationships.
  10. The discovery that extreme consumerism, extreme communism and authoritarianism foster over-adaptive behaviors and survival ethics and stagnant survival ethics.

Unicist Conceptual Economy – A Macro-Micro Approach

The development of country and business scenarios required developing logical tools to infer the future to make forecasts reliable.

In this framework, the unicist conceptual approach to economy was necessary to integrate economic behavior with the political and social scenarios, on the one hand, and with the cultural archetype, on the other hand, in order to define economic future forecasts.

Unicist Conceptual EconomyAfter 20 years of application the “Unicist Conceptual Economy – A Macro-Micro Approach”, by Peter Belohlavek, will be launched to provide additional tools to avoid or deal with economic / financial crises.

Conceptual Economy as a name and idea already exists. If you are interested, you can find it at:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conceptual_economy

The Unicist Research Institute uses the conceptual approach for scenario building to define what is possible to be achieved, while the systemic economy allows defining the probabilities after a possibility is given.
http://www.unicistinstitute.net/blog/

Time has come to disseminate this knowledge because now the unicist complexity science approach is leading in its segment, and conceptual economy is a complex issue that provides true solutions.

On November 29, 2013 at 12:00 pm EST Peter Belohlavek will be lecturing on this subject as the first step of the presentation of the book.

The lecture is being promoted among members of the American Economic Association, the Chiefs of Economic Staffs of the Countries whose scenarios are being built (51 countries) and the members of our community.

Dealing with economics requires using a pragmatic approach

Economic Sciences is a paradigmatic field of complex adaptive behavior. The unicist approach to economics integrates pragmatism, structuralism and functionalism. This first post is about the pragmatic aspects of the unicist approach. If you want to find the roots of pragmatism, we recommend reading the works of Charles Sanders Peirce, William James and John Dewey.

Framework of the Unicist ApproachThe unicist approach to complexity science was developed in order to provide a methodology that is specific to deal with complex adaptive systems in order to avoid the extension of the use of methodologies that correspond to the field of researching systemic aspects of reality.

This drove towards the integration of a pragmatic, structural and functionalist approach to research in the field of complexity sciences that is the framework used in all the researches done at The Unicist Research Institute.

Pragmatism

The research in the field of complex adaptive systems does not allow artificial experiments because they change the conjunction of elements that integrate them.

Therefore a pragmatic approach that integrates practice and theory is needed.

This implies that complexity science requires the integration of reliable knowledge (theory) with experiencing (practice) in order to define the functionality of a complex adaptive system.

The Unicist pragmatism is based on the integration of theory and practice based on the knowledge of the ontogenetic map of the specific aspects of reality which include their fundamentals.

Unicist pragmatism is based on the unicist reflection process (action-reflection-action) and the use of destructive tests to establish the limits of the theoretical knowledge and non destructive tests to put pragmatism into action.

If you are not aware of the meaning of the word pragmatic, we strongly recommend researching the concept “pragmatism”.

The Unicist Archetype of Japan

Japan has a very powerful archetype to sustain its ultimate purpose that is growth within a communitarian environment and a deep sense of loyalty.  Thus reliability is a natural consequence.

To understand the Japanese archetype we recommend listening to the lecture you find at:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8vxkTozAdE

Cultures that have a strong drive towards growth cannot accept the defeat of their leaders. The elite of the culture needs to represent the values of the archetype.

The purpose of the maximal strategy of the Japanese culture is the expansion of the community based on the members’ pride for their work and sustained by their collective intelligence as a community or group.

Collective intelligence is in Japan the catalyst of their growth. Therefore there is a need for  integrating the values of the community in order to be able to exert collective intelligence.

Individual intelligence is the entropy inhibitor of the Japanese archetype. It allows individuals to adapt to the conditions of the situation in order to achieve growth.

Loyalty is the final purpose of the minimum strategy. This means that individuals who are not loyal to the structure of the society are considered as aliens.

The integration of aliens implies a very slow process in order to avoid the loss of the roots of the culture.

Strong cultures as Japan respect foreigners based on their values and deeds. Dealing with Japan as an outsider is easy if one accepts that one is a foreigner. Respecting its archetype is the first step to deal with the Japanese community.
