Economy is classified as a scientific discipline. However, it does not meet the criteria that need to be met by the science. Science is supposed to explain how the world functions. Its achievements are result of scientific research carried out on the basis of certain paradigms. Such research is repeated many times in order to verify the reliability of the results.
The phantom principles of economy, described on the basis of repetitive phenomena, currently do not apply and their aims are not achieved. Why?
- God, help me, I don’t have money to pay the taxes!
- This is the prayer of a lunatic because does God set taxes?
No, we set them ourselves. Economy and the economic life are based on social agreements. We ourselves create orders and bans, symbols and concepts. Social agreements are written in the form of the law and the law, in theory, is created by our representatives. We have devised money and the ways to use it. We have devised ownership, the hierarchy of all the values according to which we evaluate e.g. social usefulness of man. Conclusion: our social agreements are inadequate and so is our economic law. The system has not been successful. Since we created it ourselves, we can also change it. Economy is not based on universal principles. Therefore, changing such principles is possible and necessary.
The current generation, generation of children of the network, faces a great challenge: to create the new principles of economic life, define the purpose of such principles and establish mechanisms which will automatically lead to their achievement. This is an enormous challenge but the children of the network have a huge potential which allows them to face it because, luckily, most of them think creatively and independently.
