Scientific Revolution? A Farewell to EconWPA. MPRA is welcome


  • Harin, Alexander


A new approach is presented. It is based on a generalization of a breach of a term of contract and on the economic uncertainty principle. Problems, which can be solved, research fields, which can be augmented or created, and fields of applications in practical economy are reviewed. The role of information media is described.
