Posted To RWER Blog 06/14/2017 Regarding Applying Counter Intuitiveness To Economics

Me:  Perhaps if we discovered a concept and process that embodied the discerning integration of opposing truths, like Wisdom for instance, and then crafted policies that reflected and effected Wisdom’s pinnacle concept….both intuitive leaps may become more self actualized and the economy more abundant for all agents and more flowing as well.

JB:  About the problem of wisdom and human action, the most thought-provoking synthesis I met in Conze’s summary of the voluminous Prajnaparamita: “1) One should strive to become a Bodhisattva, that is, one who is content with nothing less than all-knowledge attained through the perfection of wisdom for the sake of all living beings, 2) There is no such thing as a Bodhisattva, or as all-knowledge, or as a “being,” or as the perfection of wisdom, or as an attainment. To accept both these contradictory facts is to be perfect.”

Me:  Correct….because Wisdom is the integration of opposites and the height and pinnacle concept of Wisdom is such continual integrating also known in the West (and by various other words elsewhere) as the dynamic and evolving concept of a state of grace, whether personal or systemic.

Viz free market economics and free market economic theory, which have historically been plagued by balkiness and without a new paradigm probable unworkability, I would suggest contemplating and integrating into such theory the following aspects of grace: free, a gift, gifting and free flowingness.
