Principles of Fantasy Free Economics

Economists normally don’t study the animal kingdom. They don’t need to, They go with the standard way of looking at mankind and that is as a special entity who borders on Divinity. Laws of nature are deemed to apply only to lower animals.

Fantasy Free Economics  does not accept this limitation. I study the survival of human beings exactly the way I would study the behavior of a pack of dogs or a herd of horses. In doing things like this I put realistic definitions on the various persons, places and things which are part of the system.  For example, an Ivy League economist would see the chairman of the Federal Reserve as a brilliant intellectual, full of honor whose only goal is to serve the country. I look at the Federal Reserve chairman as just one of the animals without any incentives that are not part of nature. For example, self interest is an incentive but there is no incentive to serve. It is not rational to assume a person is working at a job in order to serve. Self interest is part of nature. Service as a primary motive is a fantasy.

There may very well be a spiritual world that human beings have access to and can interact with. I believe that there is but the secular world is part of the animal kingdom. Living and working in the secular world does not mean one is evil or even bad.
