Market Myths in Contemporary Economics
This paper elaborates on the economic operating system (EOS) the role it can play in growth. It focuses on markets, price determination and forces of demand and supply in order to illustrate how an EOS model offers greater economic growth, stability and safety. This paper delves into market theory to determine whether what is commonly understood about market forces and free markets in contemporary economics is as reliable as might be expected; do free markets encourage or retard economic growth? It is often, for amusement, brought up how modern medicine despite its advances cannot cure the common cold. Contemporary economics has a similar pet peeve; it does not know how to cure common inflation and deflation. The same way medicine leaves the body’s immune system to deal with colds until a cure is found contemporary economics leaves inflation and deflation to market forces to sort out with the occasional booster shot of intervention when this process seems to fail. To this day the stand off between Keynesian and Monetarist models demonstrates the irascible nature of this economic bug; is seems in contemporary economics there is only one way to control it and that’s do nothing about it. This nothing in contemporary economics is what is referred to as free markets. Allowing free markets to set prices and act as a mechanism for managing inflation works, what doesn’t work is that free markets systems based on a Monetarist model lack reliable growth and not being able to do anything comprehensive when market forces begin to act up. In a downturn, suddenly the liberty of free markets can become a threat to economic stability. Free markets may work best in an economic operating system (EOS) model better able to exploit the efficiency of markets whilst accelerating economic growth.
