Utility-based concept and the fallback choice-theoretic framework are proven to be biased, irremediably mistaken and deceptive. A substantially diversified concept of price and of purchaser behaviour is proposed according to existential interpretations of shortage, price and self-interest. For self-conscious mortals, merely time is scarce. All different is spinoff shortage. worth is within the lifestyles, as a data extract of time, which fits into commodities as direct human labour and depreciated capital, via their construction. through structuring their personal tastes, shoppers attempt to confiscate extra of such worth according to unit of expended source of revenue, extending their social presence, soothing their angst and gaining energy over one another. This increases output and makes earnings cancel out. unfavorable mental externalities avert any health or social-welfare style conclusion.



These get to the bottom of a few long-standing concerns: endogenously generated development, the micro-macro connection, the cost mechanism, crises, unemployment, and so forth. Equilibrium is of a low-potential style, now not of a force-balancing one, and it truly is distinctive, on hand and good. The appropriate analytics contain only fiscal, non-psychological entities. client behaviour is grounded on a well-defined, structure-based determination criterion and on observably measurable magnitudes, in basic terms. The social ramifications of the 2 juxtaposed views are mentioned at length.
