Reciprocal Economics, or what is academically referred to as Economics is an ineffective way to manage the environment that people inhabit for the simple reason that it is counter to natural law, counter to what can be scientifically ascertained, and devastating to effective learning. Decreeing that fallacy is truth doesn’t make it true. What is practiced as economics mis-quantifies mathematics in a manner that produces erroneous results that are toxic to people, toxic to humanity, and disastrously toxic to the environment that all people share.
Consider Earth with a population of about eight billion people. That makes the economic value of each person 1/8,000,000,000,000th of the net worth of the the world’s economic output. Each person has a mathematical equivalence perilously close to worthlessness. People who believe they are worthless tend to be depressed, suicidal, and incapable. They tend to be unkind to themselves, to others, to the environment, and to future generations. Reciprocal Economics teaches people they are nearly worthless. Does that seem like a good Idea?
People are creators. They don’t just live in their environment they create ways to improve it. Each has the potential value of eight billion over one, because two people can create more than one can, and eight billion can create infinitely more. One person can’t build an airplane or a cellphone. Four billion can’t build peace.
Economics is a natural force available to humankind for its capability, its enjoyment, and its preservation. It is the environmental way to create competence from kindness. Reciprocal Economics belongs in the trash heap of history.
