Economic Power puts Archetypical Power into Action

The Power of Nations is based on the construction capacity which is given by work and sustained by the non-exerted destruction capacity that we call dissuasion power.

This implies that the economic power has to provide the maximal strategy, the possibility of upgrading to the next step while the dissuasion power developed by the administrative authorities of the country provides the necessary secure environment to grow.

It has to be considered that the economic power is basically individualistic oriented. In the materialistic world the same “thing” cannot be shared. Money is in my pocket or it is in your pocket. It cannot be in both at the same time.

That is why the nature of the materialistic world is the dualism which naturally drives towards fostering activities based on individual initiatives.

This is not necessary at a subsistence level but it is a must if a culture fosters expansion and influence in the environment.

How Economic Growth can be Fostered

The unicist ontology of economic growth defines that it is based on the action of a technological driver and sustained by the need to avoid scarcity.

If we describe the concept of economic growth, its ontology or fundamentals, we can say that economic growth is driven by technology, monetary circulation, competitiveness and scarcity.

Considering the active principle, that sustains the maximal strategy, technology is the purpose that must be achieved in order to make an economy grow.

This purpose is put into action by a consumer’s monetary circulation and sustained by value competitiveness.

The active principle of economic growth requires:

  • Technology: technology implies an improvement of the generation of added value with less energy consumption and less energy losses. Thus the economy grows in terms of increasing the available added value that can be traded in the community.
  • Consumer’s monetary circulation: is the necessary money and credit available to access goods for the mass population.
  • Value competitiveness: is the capacity to compete providing superior value and not based on cost advantages.

The energy conservation principle, that sustains the minimum strategy, requires the integration of a need to avoid scarcity, productive monetary circulation to finance the production of goods and services and price competitiveness in order to win markets based on price advantages.

The Unicist Ontology of Figurative Communication at Work

The use of language in a communication requires accepting the fact that in order to develop work there is a need to achieve true consensus.

Although the ontology of language that has been researched and discovered is applicable to universal communications, we will be focusing here on the description of work driven activities and not pastime activities.

Words are naturally filtered before they are spoken or written. This filter can build the necessary fallacies to think that some specific communication is happening while in fact a different communication is occurring.

That is why communication can only be measured in the results produced by true consensus.

True consensus might imply knowing the structural differences between the parts that are communicating. In this case it allows knowing the consequences of the differences.

The use of figurative communication allows avoiding the dysfunctional filtering of communications, providing messages that drive naturally towards true consensus.

That is why people who cannot assume a responsibility of something cannot understand figurative communication.

The purpose of figurative communication is to achieve true consensus which means achieving a rational, emotional and conceptual consensus.

Achieving true consensus requires solving the conflicts which might be driven by interests, needs, beliefs, lack of knowledge, etc.

There are four types of figurative messages:

  1. Analogies
  2. Metaphors
  3. Enigmas
  4. Homologies

Davos 2014: Proposing the Unicist Approach to Manage Evolution

The Unicist Approach to manage the adaptive aspects of reality opened the boundaries to diagnose and develop solutions in complex environments.

We invite economists, anthropologists, political scientists, sociologists and all the professionals who are focused on evolution to participate in the preparation of a document on the Unicist Approach to Evolution to be presented to the World Economic Forum 2014.

This approach allows integrating the technical analytical approach with the unicist fundamental approach to provide reliable knowledge to forecast the future to build accurate scenarios and define the consequent possibilities.

The document will be finished by June 2013 inorder to be evaluated by the organizers of the World Economic Forum 2014.

Market growth: Think before lowering the prices to grow

Price Elasticity of demand measures the responsiveness of demand to a change in the price of the product. Alfred Marshall first developed it. From our point of view this is one of the most believed fallacies in economic knowledge, because there is no direct dependence between these variables.

The price elasticity of demand is calculated by considering the percentage change in demand and dividing it by the percentage change in price.

But this relation is real only if there is no change in the perceived value of the product.

We consider the traditional theory an explanation of a particular situation which can not be considered a law.

Considering the Unicist Conceptual approach the elasticity of demand, analyzed from the point of view of the supplier, depends on the price and the perceived value of products.

The sole fact of a product being used changes its value. Therefore it is necessary to understand that the “price elasticity of demand” depends on the price and the subjective value that sustains the price. The price elasticity occurs only within the fuzzy set described and defined by the value-price relation.

The unicist ontological algorithm of involution

Humans cannot deal consciously with involution. Involution implies naturally an unconscious behavior of the individuals involved.

The degradation of the objectives is the natural answer of individuals who cannot deal with a reality. When an individual is unable to adapt to an environment in order to influence it s/he will naturally degrade the problem in order to be able to influence it.

When this process is done consciously the individual is learning. But when the individual does is unconsciously the individual is involving. Involution implies an entropic behavior of individuals in order to find an easier way to deal with problems.

We have researched the mechanic of involution in order to forecast behaviors and build the necessary entropy inhibitors in order to avoid it.

Involution begins at the same stage as evolution: understanding the purpose.

But when an individual cannot adapt to the environment s/he chooses to begin by conserving the energy in order to gain time to understand this reality.

This behavior is unconscious and produces paradoxical results. It drives to develop the necessary actions that are within the minimum strategy that is implicit in the energy conservation principle in order to survive.

Thus the survival of the individual is achieved but the purpose is left behind. Humans cannot accept that they changed a purpose. To avoid this perception individuals build the necessary fallacies.

Democracy and Bottom-up and Top-down economic systems

Democracy is a bottom-up economic system but it has to be understood that ideologies and political power has to sustain social evolution and not the economic agents. This implies building a subtle equilibrium where economic agents drive evolution while political power ensures the present and future generations.

“Only by understanding the nature of a culture it is possible to design an adequate economic model that is adapted to such culture. An economic system can only work integrated within the values of a culture.

If it is not it will necessarily degrade towards dysfunctional trade-offs before it explodes or implodes.

In the world there are different levels of democracy. In the following pages you will find a description of the fundamental segments of democracy to be considered as an input and as a limit to define economic solutions in the public or private sector.

Democracy and economic models

To approach the problem, the first issue to be defined is the meaning of the word democracy.

Democracy can be described as the authoritative leadership of a group or community achieving consensus and efficiency, and making the necessary trade-offs in a context of evolution conflicts.

The concept of democracy can also be described from a participant’s point of view. In this case, the purpose to be achieved is efficiency, and consensus is a procedure to be used to make things possible.”

Unicist Approach: changing the Paradigms of Economic Growth

Economic Growth was basically managed using monetary circulation until the Unicist Approach to Economic Growth was developed.

The Unicist Approach defined the necessary conditions to develop economic growth which are applicable to macro and microeconomics making the necessary homologies. It requires dealing with the fundamentals of Nations and how their power is sustained.

“The Power of Nations is based on the construction capacity which is given by work and sustained by the non-exerted destruction capacity that we call dissuasion power.

This implies that the economic power has to provide the maximal strategy, the possibility of upgrading to the next step while the dissuasion power developed by the administrative authorities of the country provides the necessary secure environment to grow.

It has to be considered that the economic power is basically individualistic oriented. In the materialistic world the same “thing” cannot be shared. Money is in my pocket or it is in your pocket. It cannot be in both at the same time.

That is why the nature of the materialistic world is the dualism which naturally drives towards fostering activities based on individual initiatives.

This is not necessary at a subsistence level but it is a must if a culture fosters expansion and influence in the environment.”
