The Philosophical interpretation of Fragility as an Economics concept


  • Tweneboah Senzu, Emmanuel


The foundation upon which this paper was submitted is to rigorously conceptualize the adoption, and the interpretation in the use of the term ‘Fragility’ in a strict economics perspective, to avoid the continual arbitrary interpretation of the terminology that confuses its explanation power in a strict economic context to that of political economy as a school of thought within the Lexicon of the School of Social Sciences.
