Mrs. Economy

Do you still think you’re free? Ask Mrs. Economy …

The economy, what is it? According to various classical theorists, it is the scarce resource allocation. Through mechanisms such as price control, interest rates and other tools, an attempt is made to make markets work efficiently. Up to here, everything is correct. An oxymoron that always comes to my mind, is: The economy generates extraordinarily large profits whenever it fails. Let me explain. A really practical example are wars. Dictators (such as Franco, Stalin) enjoyed a power beyond money, they came to control the uncontrollable and they got out of hand. That’s what I like most about the economy, which is as abstract and submissive as it is real and compelling. My opinion is that it has life. Go crazy, you must think … Well no, she has life and she does not like to be shocked or bothered. It does not like that you force her to work under strict parameters, it is altered.

I do not come to tell you that you are lost in an oasis of madmen who only profess the law of maximum benefit and that you do not give a damn. No man, I would never tell you that. I do not like to tell the truth. This world we live in is a jungle. Sometimes I wonder how we’ve evolved so much, the struggle for power (whether it be the leader of a tribe, being a divinity, an emperor, a king, a billionaire) has always come to the fore. Let’s try to play with intelligence, let’s not fall into such obvious traps, let’s be faster. We must form, is that the solution? Why, to know that we are not really free and we are frustrated? Live to rest from our busy jobs? Work for another or work for others? For my part, I hope to have made you think something, not bad, sometimes …
