The meaning of gainful trade
Abstract'Gainful trade: a new economics' explains why and how economics may be rebuilt from scratch to allow the occurence of gainful trade. It uses a new concept of consistency of social choice and a new analytical tool called consistency analysis to build a unified model of economics. It answers all questions of macroeconomics from an extended micro model. The new paradigm makes macroeconomics obsolete. The key element is the treatment of money as a means of payment to allow indirect exchange.
